I have a great career. I love my work, and am good at what I do. My fiance recently transitioned from one career to another, and is having a difficult time finding work. Regardless of that, he asked me to marry him.
Ladies, and guys, would you marry someone who financially stable/career stable? Would you ask someone to marry you if you weren't financially stable? I love this guy and want to spend the rest of my life with him, but it seems reckless to move forward with a marriage when you might not be able to provide for your family (although my income could more than cover both of us if it needed to).

Good question. I'm in your situation. I'm beginning to loath being the main one paying for almost everything. It makes me feel like I'm the only one responsible while he's chasing his dreams. When I agreed to his proposal, I wasn't expecting it would take him so long to establish himself in his career and get stable already. So yes, I would prefer to marry someone who is financially secure because it makes life easy for both of us to start a family in future. And no, I wouldn't and I think a guy/girl shouldn't ask someone to marry them unless they can provide for her/him. Thts my opinion.
On the other hand, my best friend is a doctor and her husband is a househusband. She is the sole breadwinner and they're happy because she doesn't mind bringing in the cash while he cleans and cook. It works if both agree to chip in in some way to make marriage life smoother.0
