Socialite Risper Faith has advised women to be financially independent.

The mother of one said finances is one of the many reasons most couples are breaking up.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, Risper said most couples are not transparent to each other about finances.

"Women, find something to do, even if you are married to a wealthy man. If you don't have the money, come up with a business idea and ask your man to support you," she said.

"You don't have to nag your man over small things such as pampers, salt, etc. My advice is for couples to split bills. It can be 50/50 or 70/30," she said.

"If, for example, there is no food shopping at home, the little I get from my business I take the car, go and shop and cook. When your man comes home he won't even notice."

She added that every woman should contribute something to the relationship.

"The little money I have I use to buy small things at home, I take care of the small things and the man takes care of the big bills.

Before you go into a marriage sit down and agree who will be paying what bills."

Her husband Brian said he would have dropped Risper if she did not work and entirely depended on him.

"I would have dated you but maybe dropped you along the way. But I have seen how hard you work," he said.

He advised married men to keep married men as friends.

"When you are a husband and you have single friends they don't understand our struggles. We have single friends but it's because they understand us."
