FindLaw Survey Finds Married Women 18-34 More Financially Savvy

When it comes to money and marriage, young women are more likely to know about and manage a couple's finances. According to a new national survey* by FindLaw.com, the most popular legal information website, married women between the ages of 18 and 34 are the most likely among married people to play a significant role in managing the couple's finances, and less likely to squabble with their spouses about money.

"We found that younger women, in many ways, are the most money-savvy among married couples," said Stephanie Rahlfs, an attorney and editor with FindLaw.com. "We sought to understand how couples manage their money, how much they fight about money, and how much they know about their financial situation. Younger women are the most likely - among men or women of all ages - to take on responsibility for understanding and managing the household finances, and do it without fighting about money issues."
