Women regard healthy finances as more important than good looks in a man, according to a survey on last Friday.

Women regard healthy finances as more important than good looks in a man, according to a survey on last Friday.

Almost half said a healthy bank balance is more significant than physical attractiveness in a potential partner, according to National Savings & Investments' (NS&I) latest quarterly savings survey.

Just 22 percent of men, however, rate finances above looks in women.

A salary of almost 50,000 pounds a year is demonstrative of male financial success, according to women.

Men need to earn at least 49,247 pounds a year before women consider them successful and wealthy, the study found. And more than one in 10 women would only consider a partner to be successful if they are earning 100,000 pounds or more.

Men were found to have lower expectations, saying they would deem women earning 42,147 pounds to be successful and wealthy.

On the savings front, women expect their men to have an average of 24,281 pounds in savings -- compared to 20,335 pounds in reality -- while men are happy with savings of 15,143 pounds among women, much in line with an actual average of 14,167 pounds.

Dax Harkins, senior savings strategist at NS&I, said: "Finances form a very important part of relationship dynamics and this is reflected in the expectations people have, both in terms of salary and savings levels. Maybe people do believe they can buy happiness after all."

Despite marked differences in expectations, 64 percent of those questioned agree that financial security is important to the success of a relationship.

上周五公布的一项调查结果表明,女性认为,男人有钱比长的帅更重要。

英国全国储蓄与投资的最新季度储蓄调查显示,近一半的英国女性表示,男人有钱比长的帅来得实际。

然而,只有22%的男性认为女性的经济状况比相貌重要。

在女性看来,一个男人的年薪达到5万英镑才能算得上有钱。

调查表明,男人一年至少得挣49247英镑,才能让女人觉得他们"有钱和成功"。而且,有十分之一以上的女人觉得男人年薪达到10万或10万以上才能达到"成功"的标准。

而男性对女性的期望值则相对较低,他们觉得女性的年薪达到42147英镑就能算是"有钱和成功"了。

在存款方面,女性对男性的存款期望值平均为24281英镑,而现实中英国男性的平均存款量只有20335英镑;男性则认为女性的存款达到15143英镑就不错了,这和女性的实际平均存款14167英镑基本吻合。

英国全国储蓄及投资的高级储蓄战略家戴克斯·哈金斯说:“经济状况是两性关系中一个很重要的因素,这主要体现在人们对于对方薪酬水平和存款量的预期上。或许人们真的认为,钱可以买到幸福快乐。”

除了在经济期望值方面的显著差别,64%的调查对象认为安全的经济状况对于维持两人的关系很重要。
