Romance & Money

Valentine’s Day is approaching and although few people are called Bálint or Valentina, many people celebrate this day.

By the way, I was looking for some American surveys of the relationship between love and money in relationships.

According to a survey by, 23% of men and 41% of women were interested in starting a relationship to see how much they were earning.

5% of men and 14% of women have already quit because the other is not earning enough.

The other has earned too much


4-4% of men and women have already quit because the other has earned too much. (“I broke up with him not because he was looking for much, but because he treated me like an employee,” a man said.)

64% of men and 35% of women would support being a full-time mother / father and staying home. However, 34% of women would not at all support her husband staying home while she is at work. (“It would be hard to look at him as a man.”)

“What is most important in a love relationship?” For 1.4% of men, the other’s financial situation, for 9%, the appearance of the partner and the rest indicated personality as the most important factor. For women it was 1.4% and 1.7%, and the rest was personality.

According to the Discover survey


40% of people at the beginning of the relationship entered into a relationship for adventure and fun, 29% chose for the other, financial stability was 14%, and family formation as a goal 12%.

Later, financial stability jumped to the forefront by 59%, and then it was 82% of the bride-to-be who named it as the most important factor.

That is, while the first date was less important to how much the other was earning and how stable his job was, it became more important later on, and even more so as the relationship became more serious.

Let’s look at another survey on New Zealand


4% of men and 8% of women would date someone just for the money.

80% of men and 30% of women say it doesn’t matter how much they earn.

92% of men and 25% of women would marry someone who earns less.

And how much does the average American spend on Valentine’s Day? 55% of Americans celebrate this holiday, spending an average of $ 146.84 on that day.

That’s $ 19.7 billion on a nationwide basis. Of this, 1.7 billion goes to confectionery, 4.5 billion to restaurants. Not surprisingly, people in their twenties spend more on this day than older people and older people spend less money on plush hearts and sweets, instead opting for dinner, cinema and other activities.
