According to the study, about 74% of partnered millennials and Gen Zers were angry with their partner over a financial decision they made. At the same time, 15% have not yet discussed debt with their partner.

The research highlights two main factors of the argument: the partner made a large purchase without telling them (31%), or spent a lot of money on what the respondent considers frivolous (30%).

When asked what part of their relationship is the most difficult in terms of money, 30% answered that each partner was brought up with a different view of money. The other most frequent responses were the following: one partner earns much more than another (19%), with one partner saving and the other a spender (17%).

Gen Z couples and millennials are saving money for the future. Indeed, 57% save for a home and 46% for children. Moreover, 38% of those in a relationship but not engaged save money for their wedding.

Nearly one in seven (15%) Gen Z and millennial couples do not discuss the debt. This rises to almost a third (32%) for those who do not live together. Even 8% of married couples never talked about debt.

At the same time, almost a quarter (24%) of married Gen Z and millennials still have separate bank accounts.

The hardest part of working with finance was because the partners grew up with different points of view of money.
