Financial Responsibility More Important Than Hot Sex

This article was written by in Fun and Contests, People. 3 comments.

According to a survey of more than 1,000 adults, financial responsibility is more important to a lasting relationship than sexual compatibility. For both men and women, sex ranked last when compared to faithfulness (#1), honesty (#2), financial responsibility (#3), and sense of humor (#4).

Financial troubles ranked even higher when people were asked what situations put the most pressure on relationships. Problems paying bills tied with in-law troubles as the top sources of stress.

From this, I conclude that managing your finances well leads to better sex. As you and your partner achieve financial responsibility together, the survey shows the link to strong relationships, and with strong relationships come better sex.
