They say money can’t buy you happiness, but according to a survey by British trade-in site Ziffit, it could probably make people stay even though they’re experiencing rocky relationships.

About 5,000 people across the United Kingdom were asked on how finances have affected their relationship, and they found 28 percent of surveyed participants currently in a relationship admitted that financial security was a key factor for them to stay in the relationship. Meanwhile, over 35 percent said they wouldn’t be able to cover the cost of living without the support from their significant other.

“It is all rather worrying to see just how financially dependent Brits are on their partners. Our survey suggests that when five couples are sitting around a table, at least one person is there purely because of the financial security their partner provides,” says Paul Treanor, eCommerce director at Ziffit. “It’s a poor reflection on the state of our nation’s finances if people are staying together for the pounds in their pockets, and not the love they feel in their hearts.”

What do you think FN Girls? Does this apply to Filipinos as well?
