It is sad and unfortunate that the message of women
developing self-reliance in financial matters is
interpeted as the hysterical rantings of a male bashing, bitter divorced woman.
The point is that Letterese is correct. Women must
take charge of their own future and impliment a
system in which their well being is provided and
Perhaps those who question this wisdom would like to
become employed at any to this country's nursing facilities. Note, I said "employed" not "visit".
Let those scoffers deal with the day to day reality
of elderly women who were taught her Prince Charming
will always be there for her and take care of her. She
has devoted a lifetime to her husband and children,not
from obligation ,but pure love and has done a fine job.
But because she never believed or was taught financial
principles were important to herself she launquishes
in a 15X15 room with 1 bathroom, 2 twin beds, and
a room mate.
( Okay, I just step off the soap box.) Anyway, this
isn't to discuss good/bad marriages or the distressing
state of affairs for the majority of the elderly of
the United States. But the message is correct.
There must be personal responsibilty and action for
women if we don't want to grow up to become bag ladies
