Everyone’s relationship is different, but many relationships can have many secrets. Some for the good, some for the bad. Bad secrets are never good when it comes to sustaining a healthy relationship. Honesty is the best policy but sometimes couples just find things too hard to share. Financial issues is one of the major things that couples usually hide from each other. Some financial issues can be innocent and some can be considered embarrassing.
Many people hide a secret bank account, if you can’t trust your partner with knowing how much money you have then that’s a red flag. You don’t have to share everything with your partner but if you feel that you must go to great lengths to hide your financial status either you’re not trustworthy or you think they aren’t. Either way it goes, it’s not a sign of healthy relationship.
Also, some people hide their debt or unpaid loans. That’s really nothing to be embarrassed about, if your partner can’t accept you during your financial debt, then they don’t deserve you during your financial freedom. Lastly, many couples hide their secret spending habits or expensive addictions. If you can’t be honest with your partner about your spending habits then that means you know you’re doing something irresponsible and not that important. Open up to your partner about your spending desires and there’s a chance you can work things out with a set budget.
