This doesn't surprise me at all. My husband and I have differing views when it comes to taking on debt as well - he has much more confidence doing it than I do. We've done just fine, but it still makes me nervous sometimes.

I think some of that has to do with the way each gender is treated in society. Women have been taught to defer to men for too long.

I have to say my husband is much more comfortable with making the decisions about owning our home. I was pretty stressed when we bought our house and he was confident we would be fine. Don't tell anyone, but he was right.

I am not surprised at the numbers here. I was a total mess when we were making our home buying decisions. I don't know if I could have made that leap of faith without my husband there.

With both my husband currently in finance and myself having been in that proffession I think I would feel just as confident. But I can see how it could be intimidating.

I can say I'm so uneasy about the idea of owning my own home, that I'm actually happier renting.

I think it has to do more with personalities than it does gender. Typically I think more like men on these types of topics than even my hubs does.

I consider that it is not about gender, more likely it would be personalities, on how someone can manage themselves getting a house and moving to that step.

Does this graph take into account single income homes? Or such? I feel like these numbers could be so different depending on the demographic asked.
