Abstract

This study examined the intergender differences between men and women primary family financial managers (PFFM). The results supported the need for research to examine differences between men and women besides examining the differences between men and women PFFMs. Of the 20 variables employed in this study, only the money attitude of power/spending differentiated between men and women PFFMs but not between men and women in general. However, the money attitude of power/spending did differentiate between men and women in general when tested individually. The sample consisted of 395 heterosexual couples from two rural counties in Arizona and in California. Further research is needed to determine the differences between men and women PFFMs.
