Dear, Sir/Madam,

I am writing you about the article «Women Are Better at Dealing with Money Than Men» on dealing with money appeared in your Web site http://www.english-online.at/index.htm in 2012. It raised some important issues, which I feel strongly about and to my ind all your readers need to consider them carefully.

It is possible to say that better dealing with money may help people to live better. Moreover, it is hard to argue with the fact that men need more money, because traditionally in our society man is positioned as earner and breadwinner. Therefore, it is vital skill for men – to deal with money correctly.

To my mind, there are some things that society can do to deal with this problem. Firstly, I find it necessary to teach people (especially men) how to deal with their money, how to save and how to spend it. Secondly, according to the results of the research, family budgets should be managed by women. In that case, money will be spent more wisely. Probably, there should be more solutions. We just need to think more about this problem to find them.

In conclusion, I want to say «Thank you for your article», because the problem, mentioned in it is very important...
