Jane Dokko (au); Geng Li (au); Jessica Hayes (au)
This study presents novel evidence on the role of credit scores in the dynamics of committed relationships. The authors document substantial positive assortative matching with respect to credit scores, even when controlling for other socioeconomic and demographic characteristics. As a result, individual-level differences in access to credit are largely preserved at the household level. Moreover, the authors find that the couplesäó» average level of and the match qualty in credit scores, measured at the time of relationship formation, are highly predictive of subsequent separations. This is partly because initial credit scores and match quality predict subsequent credit usage and financial distress, which in turn are correlated with relationship dissolution. Results suggest that credit scores reveal an individualäó»s relationship skill and level of commitment. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
