Honey, I’m going to keep an eye on the money

Honey, I’m going to keep an eye on the money

It’s finally happened. You’ve met Mr. Right and are all set to set up home and have babies with him. Your dreams are on the verge of becoming a reality and nothing, really nothing can pinch your happiness at the moment. So you probably don’t want to be given the kind of advice that will bring you crashing down to earth. But there’s no way of avoiding what I’m about to tell you, so here goes.
It’s essential for every woman today to be smart about money. Being in love shouldn’t blind you to the need to ensure financial security within your marriage. You should be clear about your expectations around money, and take some basic steps to safeguard your rights. Though your man may seem like God’s answer to manhood at the moment, you never know what life is going to look like ten years down the line.
In the West, prenuptial agreements are often drawn up between couples to help women (sometimes men too!) claim their financial rights in case the marriage doesn’t work out. But pre-nups don’t enjoy a legal status here, and many Indian women aren’t able to claim their financial dues if the relationship breaks up. What most don’t know, however, is that there are enough provisions in the law
