New York, February 17: A new shocking study has revealed that 1-in-3 American couples are committing financial infidelity on each other.
According to the National Endowment for Financial Education study conducted by Harris Interactive, 76 percent of couples admitted that financial cheating by a spouse has hurt their relationship, 10 percent said it ultimately led to divorce, and 8 percent blamed it for a separation, the New York Post reported.
Financial adviser Jimmy Lee at Las Vegas-based Wealth Consulting Group said that several couples are getting divorced because of gambling or other addictions hidden by a spouse until it is too late to save the marriage.
According to previous records, the numbers have increased from 31 percent in late 2010 to 33 percent today. (ANI)
