PayPal’s Valentine’s Day Survey Proves Money Still Can’t Buy Love

Nearly 60 percent of young U.S. couples surveyed argue over money at least once a month, according to PayPal’s second annual “Can’t Buy Me Love” survey. Meanwhile, issues relating to work and household responsibilities top the list for couples in the UK. In both countries, sex ranked low on the list of couples’ common arguments, coming in fifth. The research, conducted by Ipsos, examined how personal finance issues affect couples and singles in the U.S. and UK.

“The ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ survey takes a look at the role money plays in romantic relationships,” explains author and personal finance expert, Carmen Wong Ulrich. “Communicating with your partner about money is a vital part of developing and maintaining a happy relationship. It’s very interesting to see how dynamics and priorities differ between genders and nationalities.”

For the second consecutive year, the survey found that PayPal is the number two most popular reported method of payment for respondents buying their Valentine’s Day gifts online, immediately after credit cards.

The PayPal “Can’t Buy Me Love” Survey was conducted by Ipsos from December 12, 2007 to December 18, 2007 via email invitation to online panelists.
