What’s the Biggest Relationship Deal Breaker in Your State?
In the GOBankingRates survey, the biggest relationship deal breakers varied slightly from state to state.
For example, Montana and Iowa are the only states that said "too much debt" is the No. 1 deal breaker. "Too much debt" and "secretive about finances" also tied for the No. 1 spot in New Mexico, with an equal percentage of respondents choosing both answer choices.
There's also a tie in Kentucky, Hawaii and Vermont, where residents chose "secretive about finances" and "overspending" as both the No. 1 deal breakers.
The rest of the states either have "overspending" or "secretive about finances" as the sole No. 1 deal breaker. None of the states chose "too cheap," "poor credit" or "doesn't make enough money" as the top financial deal breaker.
