A new poll found that about one-third of Americans, who have a spouse or a significant other they're living with, admitted to financial infidelity, meaning they've hidden financial information from their partner. In the survey from YouGov for CreditCards.com, 25 percent said they have credit cards, checking accounts or savings accounts that their partners don’t know about, 15 percent said they spend more than their partners would approve of, and nine percent say they have secret debt. CreditCards.com senior industry analyst Ted Rossman said on NewsNation Now, "It’s definitely a big deal for a lot of people. In fact, 42 percent say that physical cheating and financial cheating are equally bad. 11 percent say that financial cheating is actually worse." Rossman said the idea of having some separate finances isn't necessary bad, but couples need to be upfront about it, explaining, "I think yours, mine and ours can work. The key though, is you have to acknowledge it. So if you and your spouse each say, 'Hey, we’re going to get a certain dollar amount, or a certain percentage of every paycheck, that’s ours. No questions asked.' I think that’s totally fine."
