A survey conducted by TotallyMoney.com finds that many couples believe they’d be better off alone. The survey was taken as a complement to their online quiz entitled, Are You Richer Single or in a Relationship?
The research findings show that gender and age play a role in one’s thoughts on the matter. Male respondents in a relationship (52%) tended to feel they would be better off as bachelors, whereas the female respondents (61%) in a relationship said they are financially better off as they are.
Roughly 68% of the singles said they would not be better off in a relationship. In addition, most of the respondents who said their finances would be healthier if they were single were older (age 35 to 44).
