Better Credit Scores Lead to Better Relationships

Happy couple NYC

Well, this is interesting

According to a recent study out of the Brookings Institute, your credit score can predict the success of your future romantic relationships. Based on their research, if both partners enter a relationship with high credit scores, their relationship is likely to last longer. Another interesting insight: your partner can help improve your score!

The data collected is fascinating and worth a read. Read the rest of the findings at Business Insider.
