The wife scrambling to beat her husband home before he sees the Amazon packages on the porch or the husband claiming the tickets to that big game were a gift from a client when he actually paid top dollar for them are a couple of examples of financial infidelity. Sometimes, the amounts being spent are of little consequence, and other times, they are devastating. Either way, they demonstrate a breach of trust in the relationship and a lack of respect.
If you suspect that your spouse is misleading you about financial matters, it can shake the foundation of your relationship. Often, financial infidelity is considered overspending. But, in some cases, they could just be deceitful about money.
Sometimes, this could be your partner making risky investments without discussing it with you or just holding back money because they don’t want to contribute as much of their earnings to the family budget. All of it can be hurtful and destructive to a healthy marriage.

There are many reasons that your partner may be lying to you about money. Here are a few common reasons:
