Do you and your spouse see differently on financial matters? That could lead to divorce.
So claims a new report, which shows that only substance abuse and extramarital affairs are greater predictors of divorce than financial incompatibility. The bottom line: Feeling like your spouse is a bad money manager increased the odds of divorce by 45 percent.
And the money woes in marriage go on and on. Roughly 68 percent of U.S. adults say their romantic entanglements have been (or, I suppose, are currently being) affected by “financial deceptions.” Thirty-one percent of respondents to the survey, meanwhile, actually copped to lying about their shared finances to their partner. So, not only are you people bending the truth in your relationships, you’re also bending it in survey responses. I guess that’s the takeaway. Read on for more facts.
