Fact: Money Can Negatively Affect Relationships

Does money outweigh love? According to various statistics, it could: 

  • The #1 argument among couples is money, according to a University of Denver poll.
  • A survey by ForbesWomen and YourTango indicated that 75% of women would turn down proposals from their unemployed boyfriends.
  • 88% of women find money important in a relationship, stated by a MSNBC survey and eZine.
  • Financial problems amongst married folks is the leading cause of divorce.

These factors usually cause an unbalanced relationship in money and other aspects, resulting in a breakup: 

  • One partner saves more money than the other partner.
  • A spouse spends more money than the other spouse.
  • One significant other often (or always) uses another partner's money.
  • Single and pregnant - where is the father or support?
