June 21, 2011  |  

According to recent study conducted by YourTango and ForbesWoman 75 percent of women would not marry a man who was unemployed. And 65 percent of these women wouldn’t marry if she was unemployed.

With the unemployment as high as it is (9.1 percent), Andrea Miller, founder and CEO of YourTango says “joblessness is an increasingly pervasive issue— especially from women as they consider the fiscal and emotional stability of their romantic future.”

Meghan Casserly, a reporter from ForbesWoman says “A job can make or break the longevity of a relationship and the results of the survey demonstrate just what an important role careers play in romance.”

Do you believe that?
