Financial independence alone does not make you a independent personWhat is being a independent man according to you? Is it being financially independent so you don't have to ask anyone money or is it doing all the work by yourself without having others do it? I have seen people say "my son is very independent and does not need the support from us parents ". But I always wonder, if your son is so independent then why should he depend on his wife in all the other work such as washing, or cooking or even making tea or getting a glass of water. Now does that not make him dependent?
One more scenario is, most people say a women should be independent. Now, this independence mean, the girl should be able to work and meet some financial needs. But is she allowed to take all the major or any financial decisions? She should still agree for what her husband decides.
I always wonder, why is being independent means it should only be financially were as dependency in other factors are not at all considered. An independent man has to be dependent on his wife for all the work and an independent woman is not given enough independence to make her choice but stil such dependencies are not even taken into consideration.
