Staying together for financial stability

A third of couples fear financial instability if they split

Research conducted by Opinium for Ziffit has found a third of UK adults say financial security is a key reason why they stay with their current partner.

The research also found that for couples who stay together for financial reasons, over a third (35%) admit that they wouldn’t be able to cover the cost of living without their other half’s finances.

Results are similar to two years ago. In 2014, one in seven people who were divorced or separated admitted that they’d stayed in their marriage longer than they wanted to, citing finance as their main worry. This figure increased to one in five for women.
