The majority of Britons who live with their partner argue about money on a daily basis, new research has found.
According to a poll carried out by MyVoucherCodes, 89% of the participants admitted they argue with their partner over money, bills or finances.
The survey was carried out to understand the current financial situation of Britons, and their attitude towards money.
Almost four in 10 (39%) said the biggest cause for disagreements was 'not enough money,' while almost a third (31%) revealed they argued over 'what money was spent on'. A further 27% of those polled said 'not saving enough money' was a major cause for arguing.
Mark Pearson, chairman of MyVoucherCodes, said: "It's no secret that money is often a big cause of arguments within relationships, but what is more shocking is the number of couples that claimed to argue daily about money.
"Paying bills on time and making sure you're putting enough into savings can be stressful, but arguing about finances won't get you anywhere."
