Having been the primary breadwinner all my life, I well understand the challenging situations in which we can sometimes find ourselves.
Our relationships with our husbands, significant others, children, families and friends can be affected both positively and negatively by the stresses and successes we experience. And it can certainly affect the way we feel about ourselves.
It’s great to be a woman who is the primary breadwinner. However, despite today’s fast-paced, technologically-driven world, the evolution of male and female family roles still isn’t moving all that quickly.
If you’re a single woman, there are usually issues regarding male role models for your children. And if you’re a single mother who is actively looking for a relationship, you may have to wade through the trials and tribulations of online dating, and the delicate matter of introducing new partners into your children’s lives.
All of these things have a direct impact on how we feel about ourselves and, ultimately, how we engage with our financial future. Knowing that you have someone to turn to who has been there before, who understands and who is willing to talk honestly about some of the more sensitive issues faced by female primary breadwinners means that you’re in a good position to start finding solutions.
