All the world loves a saver, it seems, and most want to marry one. While opposites attract in the world of magnets, a recent study says that’s not necessarily the case when it comes to couples saving and spending money. People who save money rather than spend it are the most attractive marital candidates to fellow savers and to women who consider themselves spenders, according to the survey by TD Ameritrade of 2,100 Americans. But only 39% of spender men want to marry saver women.
