When it comes to finding love, it’s all about this dirty little bit. We are talking about your credit rating.
42 percent of Americans admit that evaluating the credit score of a potential partner will affect whether they want to meet with this person. Bankrate asked 1000 adults about their finances, and this percentage increased from 40% last year.
In addition, women care about the creditworthiness of their partner more than men – which is not surprising, millennials care more about other factors, for example, how much money their partner is making right now.
However, a bad credit rating can make life rather difficult and prevent future loans and mortgages. Not to mention the fact that when a couple marries, their credit score is taken on average. This means that no matter how high your score, someone can always knock you down.
