Women keen to boost their earnings before settling down

It seems that the global economic downturn has had a bigger impact on people's lifestyle than many Aussies may realise.

Lots of companies were forced to make some members of staff redundant when the worldwide recession took hold in 2008-09 and plenty of workers are still concerned about the security of their jobs.

A new study conducted by Clearblue has shown that women want to ensure they are in a solid financial position before they consider having children.

Australians' bank accounts have been under increasing pressure in recent months, as the cost of living has risen sharply and it appears that females are willing to postpone raising a family.

Just four per cent of ladies who responded to the survey said that having children was their top priority. Almost half suggested that having a child would be too much of a financial burden at this moment in time.
