Most friction for any young couple is money orientated. The Telegraph reported on a YouGov survey in March, which backed this up, stating that 26 percent of couples claim that it is their key source of tension.
In 2015, a poll by the Money Advice Service found that a third of Brits have had a partner hide major debts from the other and, probably less surprisingly, one in ten spouses have an escape fund…. The average being £7,500.
Modern consumers are happy to find a date on an app, book a table for said date on their mobile, buy cinema tickets via text, book an Uber through Facebook Messenger and pay for a secret bunch of flowers to arrive at the date’s house the next morning – all through the power of the mobile phone.
Mobiles have indisputably changed the dating scene!
So why does it stop there? Fast forward a year or two, and that same couple is now petrified of making the biggest commitment of their lives… Nope, not the wedding.
Signing up for a joint account still sends a shiver down the spine! In an age where everything is simplified through a smartphone in your pocket, why has the couple been left behind?
