Nearly thirty percent of respondents said financial infidelity is worse than physical infidelity, according to a new survey by CreditCards.com.
While romance may be brewing ahead of Valentine’s Day, a new survey shows that 44 percent of U.S. adults admit to committing some form of financial infidelity, or hiding accounts and transactions from a spouse or partner.
Some other numbers:
-34% admit to spending more money than they think their partner would be comfortable with
-17% have kept a secret account
-12% have carried some kind of secret debt
“It’s even higher under millenials,” said financial analyst Ted Rossman. “People are getting married later. They’re having more time to get entrenched into their own habits and living on their own.”
