Finances have become the top consideration for marriage consideration - the good and perhaps not so good:
Bottom Line: We know that money matters can provide a solid basis for a successful relationship – or the end of it. We know that over half of divorces are the result of financial issues but those aren't the only times in which financial concerns provide severe stress in a relationship. According to LearnVest:
Financial concerns are the top stressor for 68% of relationships
So that's clearly not good. Here's something that might be helpful going forward however...
58% of people said they'd rather stay single (for the rest of their lives even) over getting involved with someone with poor financial habits
That can be a positive catalyst for three meaningful improvements:
Better planning/financial communication prior to marriage
Added incentive for people to become more financial responsible
