One in Five People Think Their Significant Other Is Bad With Money
An annual survey from Policygenius, called "Couples and Money" found 1 in 5 people in relationships think their partner is BAD with money. And if that's how you feel, you're over 10 times more likely to break up. Here are four more fresh stats about money and relationships . . .
- 78% of people in serious relationships manage their finances together, as a couple. 22% deal with it separately.
- 19% would never spend a large chunk of money on something without talking about it first. But 1 in 5 people said they'd spend over $500, and 5% of us would spend over TEN GRAND without even mentioning it.
- 1 in 8 people in relationships have HIDDEN a secret purchase from their partner in the last six months. Around 1 in 8 also have a secret bank account or credit card.
- 1 in 11 have a secret RETIREMENT account, 1 in 14 have a secret life insurance policy, and 6% of us have a secret will.
One more random stat from the survey: 25% of people in relationships said they'd spend $100 on a gift, if they knew it would immediately end a fight.
