Although often earning a lower income than their partners women influence vital relationship and lifestyle decisions and are increasingly becoming more and more dominant.
(PRWEB UK) 8 November 2012
The report carried out by The Women in Research found that men continue to earn up to £8,000 more than women, although over recent year’s women have begun to bridge the gap. A second report carried out by the Department of Work and Pensions indicated that women are taking control of finances, picking and deciding on important issues like household finances, cars, pension plans and utility companies. Although often earning a lower income than their partners women influence vital relationship and lifestyle decisions and are increasingly becoming more and more dominant. This is a move away from the traditional beliefs that men take charge of money decisions.
‘While women may not necessarily be the more financially confident or knowledgeable, they tend to have more influence and instigate the decision-making process… (Our study showed) that men felt they had an important role to play at the final stage,’ explained Pensions Minister Steve Webb. The research showed that although couples think they work together on financial planning, they only really collaborate at the end of the process.
Dosh Express, the honest Payday Lender, responded to the study, ‘Such developments in relationships are very interesting. A change in the decision making process and who makes the final call is obviously changing nationwide, something that Dosh Express will be watching closely throughout the upcoming months.’
