#askNky | Should he have a job before getting married?


There are a few rare stories of women getting married to a man who had no job and in the course of the marriage he gets a good paying job. These stories are rare!

It must have worked out because both couples absolutely depended on God, which is a virtue most singles don’t have- no patience, no faith and a lack of spiritual understanding.

Majority of cases I counsel on daily has to do with finances and infidelity. It is wise a man gets busy before he starts thinking of getting married. If not, if the lady is the one with a job, sooner or later she will start feeling overwhelmed carrying all of the financial burdens and in turn this puts a huge strain on their relationship and they start having problems at home.

It is only wise that a man willing to take on the responsibility of starting a family, no matter what potential he has got, to be able to put food on the table for two.

Please note, I am not suggesting that he must have a mega paying job but he should ATLEAST be able to take care of himself and one extra person. Wisdom is profitable to direct.

This is my opinion on the matter. God bless you dear sisters. Wisdom sisters, wisdom!

    My two cents: why is the man getting married when he has no job? If he had one and lost it during the wedding planning that is different. I honestly believe that you should be able to take care of yourself and of course that person that is joining you before talking of marriage. Without a job or a business, what are you bringing to the table? I have had friends who did this and I tell you, none of it ended well. You may say oh as a christian if this is who God wants me to be with, then I have to do it. Mba, the fact that God says this is the one does not mean that things should not be in place before you jump into it. A word is enough for the wise!

        A job is so important> Even God gave Adam a job, the ground to till before he brought him Eve.

    A job is very important. Even God gave Adam a job before he brought him Eve. He asked him to till the ground! Romance without finance is annoyance.
