Having been married over 30 years and with my wife for 35 years, so I have no idea what is involved with dating in this century and not a whole lot from the last.

So, I was more than a little shocked on the statistic that more than 40% of adults say knowing someone’s credit score would make them think twice about dating that person. Women were nearly three times as likely to consider credit score a major influence on a potential partner compared to men (20% versus 7%).   When did sharing credit score become a thing?

Seemingly, credit scores reveal an individual’s relationship skill, trustworthiness and level of commitment, according to a 2015 paper by researchers at UCLA, the Brookings Institution and Federal Reserve Board, Washington, D.C.

I find the psychology behind this to be very interesting; I have never looked at a credit score from this perspective before. The world has gotten more complicated and dating is apparently just following suit.
