Survey

Survey methodology

Farnoosh Torabi teamed up with Dr. Brad Klontz, a financial psychologist and certified financial planner and founder of YourMentalWealth.com to conduct an academic survey in 2013, which consisted of 1,033 heterosexual women in committed relationships. Of that sample, there was a pretty equal split between women who make more than their partners and women who make less.  Eighty percent of the sample held a college degree or higher.

When she makes more, she is significantly more likely to be the primary decision maker on money matters and take charge of things like paying bills, budgeting, saving, and planning for retirement. And many more women who make more wish their partner or spouse would carry more of the financial burden in the relationship.
