Do You Hide Money From Your Spouse?

Do you have some money tucked away in a cookie jar or in a tool shed that  your spouse doesn’t know about?

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard enough time hiding the TV remote control from wife, much less a secret bank account.

According to a new survey, one in five people hide money from their spouse on a regular basis.

Women are slightly more likely to have a secret stash of cash. But when men do it, they hide more money.

For those of us hiding money, the average amount is $10,000 believe it or not. One in five secret stashes have more than $15,000 in it. They obviously didn’t see my secret stash when compiling these findings. If they did, they’d need to remove a few zeros.

What’s even more mind boggling, one in 10 people haven’t told their spouse how much money they make. One in 30 people say they’ve even lied to their spouses about their salaries.

How’s that even possible? You’d think the other person would find out sooner or later.

As to why they lie, half of the people surveyed claimed it was to make their spouse think they earn more than they really do. The other half lied to make their significant other think they earn less.
