Hello my friend Dasari100 Ji, Like you, I have passed that stage, now I am grand-mother, and do not have much problem. But your discussion is quite encouraging taht on emust starve to resolve self dependency financially. You might have just completed your studies and looking for a job, Job of your choice, suiting to your status etc. But at present whole world is under dyre recession and best is to pick up any job to start with. So that you can be on yourself. I wish you success in yourlife. May God bless You and have a great time.

I would like to listen your past experiences in your life so how you become financially independent when you were young and how you solved all the problems as a house maker because many members will impress from your views.

Hello my friend Dasari100 Ji, In simple and nut-shell, I would say, one should remain within one's resources and never extend one's legs ouside one's bed-sheet. If one is short of food, should never think beyond that. No body can become overnight billioinarie. To do this, always look down. Learn, who nevr get, what ione has got. May God bless you and have a great time.

I am 27,but I am still a student.In my opinion,everyone need independence early or late. It's not important if you are indepandent,but if you want to be independent.if you want to, everything will be happened.

Actually, we are the same. I am not financially independent too. I am dependent with my husband as he is the only one who has job. I quit working last year. Since we were married we both are working but as I have little kids and hard to find somebody responsible to take care of them, I decided to quit my job and be with my kids. Life is hard when only one is working. I am not financially dependent.

From the responses here, it is obvious that there are various definitions of "financially independent". BusinessDictionary.com lists this definition: Individual or family that can provide for, from its own resources, at least two of the three major expense categories: housing, food, and other living expenses. An article on Nightingale.com says: Financial=Pertaining to the science of managing money; Independence=Freedom from assistance by others. So financial independence means the ability to manage your money in such a way that you have sufficient funds to live your chosen lifestyle without assistance from others. In other words, enough money to meet all your needs whether you work or not, because a job is really assistance from someone else — your employer. I tend to lean toward the thinking that financial independence is when you have sufficient funds to live your chosen lifestyle without the assistance of others - whether you work or not, because as the last source says, relying on a job for your income is actually dependence on others.
