Can a Credit Score Alter Your Chances of Finding Love?


When it comes to “perfect” relationships, many people imagine romantic dates and getaways, bouquets of roses, and nice walks on the beach. However, the Federal Reserve suggests that Americans should consider the importance of another factor: credit scores.

Researchers explored the links between people’s love lives and their credit scores. The results were shocking. Research shows that Americans with high credit score are 14% more likely to find quality relationships in the next year than those whose credit scores are 100 points lower. The study concluded that credit scores can say more about a people’s responsibly and commitment in relationships than most people think.

There is no clear reason as to why a person’s credit score can determine how successful that person can be in a relationship. However, some sources believe that it may have something to do with how a credit score can greatly affect a person’s/couple’s future.

How a Credit Score Can Impact Your Future

Credit scores play a large role in your ability to make large purchases in the future.

Below is a list of ways a credit score can affect your life:

  • A poor credit score can make it difficult to find a place to live
  • A low credit score can make it difficult to purchase a vehicle with decent or low interest rate
  • A poor credit score can be difficult to raise
  • A low credit score can make it difficult to qualify for a loan
