Do Opposites Attract When It Comes to Spending Habits?

This question comes from reader Lauren in our How Do You Save? group.

I read a very interesting article on Get Rich Slowly today. The article is about a study where they found people are attracted to mates who have opposite ideas toward saving and spending money, so penny pinchers are attracted to spenders and vice versa.

I have thought of several couples, myself included and pretty much this statement holds true. I have been married for eight months and my husband is much more thrifty than myself since we have been married, I have definitely become less of a spender and realize the value of saving. He spends more than he used to but still saves. So I feel that although we are opposites, we have learned from each other.

I was just wondering, are you and your significant other also the opposite with regard to money?
