Just 16 percent said they lied because they were “embarrassed or fearful about my finances and didn’t want my partner to know.” Another 15 percent said they had never discussed finances with their partner and “feared they would disapprove” of the true picture.
A full 35 percent of respondents replied, “I believe that some aspects of my finances should remain private, even from my partner.”
