Women shun housing loans

Norwegian women fear housing loans, and they hand over the control of the loans to their husbands. Women much rather deal with the daily expenses of the family home.

“Most couples make the decision together, but we see a clear trend that women deal with the daily, continues expenses, while the men are in charge of the heavy expense posts,” said Ellen Dokk Holm, consumer economist in Postbanken to the Norwegian daily, Aftenposten.

Women give their husbands the responsibility of the mortgage, the car loan and different types of insurance, according to a new survey conducted by MMI among 1200 female costumers at Den Norske Bank and Postbanken.

Women like to have the control of buying things for the home like food, clothes, electricity and vacations.
