[All statistics below come from the study “What Do Romantic Partners Want?” Life Happens, 2018]
Q1: It’s Valentine’s Day, and we found that people would much prefer their romantic partner plan for their financial future (44%) than buy them gifts (8%). Does this statistic surprise you? #InsureYourLoveChat
Q2: People find “being responsible with money/financially fit” a top attribute in a romantic partner (64%), second only to sense of humor (80%) and above looks, wealth or style. Why do you think it comes in so high? #InsureYourLoveChat
Q3: Women are significantly more likely than men to find a romantic partner troublesome if they aren’t financially fit (77% vs 60%). Why is there such a gender difference? #InsureYourLoveChat
Q4: Millennials are more likely than any other age group to lie about their spending habits or debt to a significant other (16%). Is it relative youth or a larger social issue? #InsureYourLoveChat
Q5: Nearly half of Americans can’t explain what a life insurance premium is. How do we combat this? #InsureYourLoveChat
Q6: More Millennials can define “bae” (44%) than “life insurance premium” (38%). Let’s discuss. #InsureYourLoveChat
Q7: Being irresponsible with money is the trait people find most troublesome in a partner (70%), ahead of no regular job (62%) or low income (24%). What do you think the reason is for that order? #InsureYourLoveChat
