Financial infidelity is dangerous and can wreck a marriage.
- Have you found a credit card statement for a card you didn’t know existed?
- Has cash gone missing?
- Is your partner suddenly on a buying spree?
- Do they get emotional when you bring up money topics and suddenly start worrying about your financial status?
- Do they get paranoid about you getting to the mailbox before them?
- What about taking you off a joint credit card?
- Do they lie to you about how they’re spending money?
- Getting a little worried about this list?
Then do something. Avoid accusations, but be curious.
Propose a full financial checkup for the both of you. If possible, set money goals you both can get behind. If the infidelity has permanently wrecked the family’s financial future, you may not be able to forgive.
If you can forgive, move on.
