Monetary Infidelity: Is It Worse Than Fraud?

According to a new survey by, nearly thirty percent of respondents said financial infidelity is worse than physical infidelity.

While romance may brew before Valentine’s Day, a new poll says 44 percent of adults in the United States admit to having committed some form of financial infidelity or hiding accounts and transactions from a spouse or partner.

Some other numbers:
-34% admit spending more money than they think their partner would be comfortable with
-17% kept a secret account
-12% had some kind of secret debt

“It’s even higher under the millennia,” said financial analyst Ted Rossman. “People get married later. They have more time to anchor themselves in their own habits and live alone. “
