Turns out ladies, a lot of you are guilty of infidelity -- financial infidelity, that is. Discover the long-term consequences of keeping those to-die-for shoes a secret from your significant other.
Hi, I’m Bailey Mosier. This is your EmpowHER HER Daily Dose.
According to a new "Financial Infidelity" survey of 23,000 online users by TODAY.com and SELF magazine, nearly half of all people have lied to their significant other about money. And it turns out, women are the worst offenders.
Women out-lie the men 56 percent to 37 percent and the most common thing women were untruthful about was shopping, such as saying something was bought on sale when it was actually full price. Sixty percent of those surveyed felt that being dishonest about finances is a form of cheating and two-thirds felt that honesty about money is just as important as being monogamous.
Experts say that in order to have a successful relationship, you need to have trust and hiding money secrets is a huge way to break that confidence. It's one thing to fib about a new pair of shoes, but keeping serious money secrets from one another - about problems with debt or spending - can be a recipe for disaster."
