Is this an acceptable reason for a break up?

A friend of mine and I were talking. We're both in college.

We were discussing our relationships and she brought up a concern of hers. She wondered if I thought it was acceptable or shallow to break up with a boyfriend if you thought he would be unable to provide for a family financially in the future.

I find that an interesting question, so I thought I'd ask you all.

I posed this question to my mother, an accountant.

Her response was that she felt it was a completely acceptable reason to break up with someone if you felt that they managed money poorly since financial issues are a leading cause of divorce.

However, my friend was speaking more along the terms of intelligence. She admitted to thinking that her boyfriend wasn't intelligent enough to secure a job that made enough to provide for a family's expenses.

Anyway, ladies and gentlemen of the internet, the question is as follows:

Do you consider it acceptable to break up with a significant other if you believed they would be unable to support children and potentially you, should you become unemployed, financially?

It amuses me how many men are taking offense to this question.
