HAMBURG - German women are more worried about money matters than about affairs of the heart, with the question of their future financial security their main concern, the women's magazine Freundin reports.

"What concerns women the most these days is financial security: 65 percent of the 20- to 60-year-olds are asking themselves whether they will have enough money to live on when they are old," the magazine said, citing a survey it commissioned.

The survey taken of 1,000 German women in that age category found that 40 percent of all women said their money now barely covers their needs. In the 30- to 39-year group, one-half the women felt that way.

In the 20- to 29-year group, the survey found that 34 percent of women were worried about the question of when or if, they should have children.

As to matters of the heart, only 9 percent said they gave much thought to whether their relationship lacked passion or whether they had found the right man for their lives.

Today's woman in Germany also feels the strain of the hectic pace of life, Freundin magazine reported from the survey. Some 40 percent of women find it difficult to relax, with 47 percent of the 30- to 39-year age group feeling this way.
