Love and Marriage… and Credit

Posted on Jun 02 2014 by

Half of married couples in the U.S. say that credit scores were important to them when choosing a mate, according to the latest Experian Consumer Services survey comparing the relationship between marriage and credit.

The study also showed that 95% of participants rate “financial responsibility” as important, with “physical attractiveness” and “career ambition” following at 86% and 77%, respectively.

Even more surprising, married adults ranked financial compatibility high, even slightly higher than sex and intimacy. In fact, 73% of women and 60% of men stated that having a partner who is willing to communicate openly about personal finances and credit makes him/her more attractive.
