2017 Love and Money Survey

January 02, 2018

Is financial success easier to find than true love? Yes, according to TD's third annual Love & Money survey. Fifty-eight percent of couples surveyed say that a satisfying romantic relationship is more elusive than financial security.

Some additional findings:

Saving Savvy: According to the survey, 7 in 10 couples consider themselves "good" or "very good" at saving. And 72% believe they have the necessary personal finance skills to be successful.

Money Talks: Ninety percent of happy couples discuss finances once a month, compared to 68% of unhappy couples. With 7 in 10 couples reporting that they're in an extremely or very happy relationship, maybe conversation is the key.

Cash Clashes: While nearly 8 in 10 (78%) are comfortable talking about money with their partner, 36% of couples argue about money at least monthly. And 13% report keeping a financial secret from their partner.
