Query: Looking for answers to the following from experts who work in a field relating to relationships (like a therapist) and finance (like a financial advisor):

  1. According to a recent study, 64% of couples have committed “financial infidelity.” Why do you think this is so common?
  2. One in 4 Americans cohabiting with a partner believes that hidden financial behaviors or spending constitute relationship cheating. Do you agree? Why/how can financial infidelity be destructive in a relationship or hurtful to your partner?
  3. One in 10 secret spenders admits hiding purchases has negatively impacted their sex life. Can you try to explain this connection? How or why might hiding purchases have this effect?
  4. The top reason why people hide purchases from their partners is to avoid judgment or criticism. Can you offer advice on a better way to handle this fear of criticism or judgment?

As always, I need a link to your professional bio page on a private practice site, commercial employer, or academia. I can’t use bios from general internet directories or competitor content sites. The website you submit must at least have your name and credentials on it, preferably with an extended bio. I do prioritize submissions with the answers already provided in the reply, and I usually use 2-3 experts in each article. If you’d like to learn more about me and what I write, you can visit my author pages:
