A couple’s financial decisions can affect their financial health and also their partner’s ability to earn a living.
It’s a relationship issue that has come to the fore in recent years as we’ve witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of Americans who are either on personal or business credit cards, and it’s causing some financial issues.
But for most of us, there’s a better option than a credit card that gives you free money.
A lot of people like to see the money, but they don’t know how to do it, says Linda St. Germain, an assistant professor of management and organizational behavior at Stanford University.
St. Germains research indicates that people on personal and business credit card offers often have negative impacts on their ability to save and invest.
For instance, when you spend money on a credit cards that don’t really have much to offer, it can be difficult to get a job, St. Morris says.
People on these types of cards have higher credit scores than people who don’t have them, which is a problem, she says.
And the card issuers are not offering these types and amounts of credit to the public.
St. St Germain has developed a method for analyzing how many people have credit card accounts on these cards and how much money they’ve saved and invested.
“People with more credit cards are more likely to have higher levels of financial problems than people with fewer,” she says, noting that credit card balances can fluctuate greatly depending on how much you spend.
“And people who have more credit balances are less likely to earn enough money to live comfortably on their own.”
It’s no secret that most of our credit card spending is focused on the highest-cost credit cards.
According to the Federal Reserve, people spend more on the cards with the highest interest rates.
It may seem like a fair comparison, but St. Germains research suggests that these types are not only a bad idea, they can also have negative effects on your partner’s financial health.
For instance, in a study she did with her students, she found that women with more personal credit card purchases were more likely than those with no credit card to have an overall negative financial impact.
That finding is consistent with a number of other studies that have found that having a credit account can negatively affect a person’s financial well-being.
The good news is that it’s possible to improve your personal credit score by doing more research before you spend a significant amount of money on any credit card.
In the study, she compared her students’ scores on credit cards with their incomes.
In addition to looking at the cost of the cards and the interest rate, she also compared the amount of debt that they had and how far along they were on their credit cards before they started taking advantage of them.
She found that the higher a person has accumulated in credit cards over the course of their careers, the more likely they are to have a negative impact on their finances.
People with high credit scores are less dependent on their primary credit cards and more likely not to use any credit cards in their lifetime.
St.-Germains recommends that you keep a close eye on your credit score to ensure that it is up to par with your earning potential and that you’re still using the best available credit cards for the right reasons.
“If you don’t do that, you’ll start to accumulate debt and you’ll be in financial difficulty sooner rather than later,” she advises.
