But, at least according to the results of one new study, it looks like money may have more of a bearing on relationships than we would have hoped.

Yep, new research from Cornell University claims that an unexpected factor may have an impact on a couple's likelihood of staying together: equality in income...

'It's really the couple's combined resources that seem to matter,' he concluded in his research, recently published in the journal Demography.

'Economically disadvantaged couples are also more likely to separate,' he said.

Hmm, we reckon plenty of couples could prove him wrong!
