Money and Spending Are Often Tightly Kept Secrets in a Marriage

Despite the recent slew of celebrity breakups that seem to revolve around cheating, for most Americans, the secrets kept in a marriage are not about affairs, but instead about money. Spending habits are a touchy subject among people who live together. Each partner generally has strong ideas about how the money should be spent, and often those ideas are conflicting.

According to a survey done by CESI Debt Solutions, 38% of married couples are afraid that if their spouses knew about their secret spending, a divorce or separation might ensure. A total of 80% of the couples surveyed said that they hid facts about their income or expenses from their spouse, and just over 18% even had a credit card that the other spouse doesn't know about. This new type of lying is being referred to as "financial infidelity."

Have you discovered your spouse's secret account? You should contact a Raleigh Divorce Lawyer at Hopper Law to discuss your options with a legal professional.

Michael Hopper was straight-forward, honest and “spot-on”...
Attorney Michael Hopper was straight-forward, honest and “spot-on” when handling my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing. With his guidance and leadership, I was organized, prepared and unintimidated by the process. More than a year after my case was discharged, Mr. Hopper still personally responded to a couple of “quick questions”. I highly recommend Michael Hopper to anyone seeking quality legal representation.
