The article discusses the growth in the number of young women in Great Britain who are winding-up bankrupt as a result of credit card debts and rising household bills. One explanation for the trend is that many women are trying to emulate the lavish lifestyles of the so-called footballer wives and girlfriends but without access to a footballer's income. More young women need to strike the right balance between managing their credit and becoming a debtor.
