Secrets are never good in a relationship but it turns out a lot of folks are keeping them, and a lot of those secrets revolve around money.

  • 32% of Americans are keeping some sort of financial secret from their partner.
  • That’s up 11% from last year.
  • Of those keeping a financial secret, 50% never plan to disclose their secret to their S.O.

  • The most common financial secrets being kept include:
    • A big purchase (40%)
    • Significant credit card debt (18%)

  • And these secrets are being kept regardless of the state of a relationship, with 50% of those in unhappy relationships keeping a secret, along with 32% who are in happy relationships.

But despite all those financial secrets...
