Are you ready to combine finances with your partner? Brits wait over five years on average
Brits wait an average of five-and-a-half years before combining finances with their partner, according to Marcus by Goldman Sachs.
The bank’s research found that while couples typically wait five-and-a-half years to combine finances, almost one in 10 (8%) married couples said they waited 25 years or more before opening a joint account with their spouse.
The reasons given for combining finances were overwhelmingly practical. Just under half (49%) of those with a joint account did so to make sharing expenses easier, while 23% had joint ambitions to buy a house.
It appears that many people don't share their finances.
