Discriminating Between Primary Family Financial
Managers and Other Adults in the Family
Celia Ray Hayhoe 1 and Mari S. Wilhelm 2
Differences between men and
women primary family financial managers (PFFM) were analyzed, using a sample of
395 heterosexual couples. 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, 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.
Further research is needed to determine the differences between men and women
Key Words: family financial
manager, gender differences, money attitudes
