Fifty-five percent of women in Lithuania who are married or have a partner feel financially insecure. The main factor of the insecurity is the lack of a financial back-up plan, according to a survey of married women commissioned by Lithuanian Life Insurance Companies' Association and carried out by pollster Spinter Tyrimai.

Based on the survey, 62 percent of women indicated that their partner (husband) was the biggest earner in the household. Twenty-seven percent of women said they earned as much as their partner, while 11 percent said they were the ones who sustained their family.

Forty-three percent of the polled women said they did not feel financially secure because they earned a small, albeit regular income, while 27 percent said they had debts and 15 percent admitted they were not discussing or planning finances with their family members.

Only 9 percent of women said they felt completely financially secure. As much as 73 percent of respondents linked greater sense of security to sound financial situation. Sixty-five percent said that support by relatives would make them feel secure. Meanwhile 62 percent responded that good health would help them feel more secure.
