Pooling Finances and Relationship Satisfaction

Does the way in which couples manage their money affect happiness in their relationship? Across five studies, we demonstrate that couples who pool their money together experience greater relationship satisfaction, compared to couples who keep all (or some) of their money separate. This is mediated by feelings of financial togetherness.
