You could marry well! ;-)

Seriously, don't give up what you really want to "secure yourself
financially".  You are all too likely to discover as you earn money
that your "needs" expand to match your income and you never
have "enough". Researching and teaching can bring in enough
money to support a family nicely, or more likely only enough to make
do on.  However, it brings other rewards which are far more
satisfying than money.
