Our recent survey revealed that not only does love trump money and money creates stress in relationships, but also browser histories are off limits in romantic relationships. Turns out, Americans overwhelmingly agree that finding love is more important than being wealthy (78% versus 22%), and only 9% of respondents said they consider financial security among the most important qualities in a potential partners. But 57% cite honesty as an important quality; however honesty only goes so far. Sixty percent of Americans would rather share their financial statements with their romantic partner than their browser history.
