Science has now confirmed that if you’re dating someone who recklessly spends above their means, it can make your life miserable.

A study published in the Journal of Family and Economic Issues surveyed 500 twenty-somethings in committed relationships about their overall life and happiness level.

Researchers found that the people who dated someone who was good with money were happier overall; those who dated someone who was bad with money weren’t as happy and didn’t feel as committed to the relationship.

Finances are one of the biggest reasons people get divorced, so it’s definitely worth being on the same financial page as your partner if you’re looking to be together for the long haul.
