Should hiding financial information from your spouse be considered infidelity?
Have you ever thought that keeping financial secrets from your spouse is like cheating?
But people who are hiding their finances aren’t usually trying to hide criminal activity or an affair. They’re just embarrassed.
Now, there’s no Bible verse that says a couple has to have joint checking or that the bills have to be paid by one or the other. But the Bible IS clear that we’re not to LIE. It may take a hard conversation, but I’m challenging you today to sit down and be honest with your spouse about your money. And remember that trust is the currency of greater value than any amount of money in a marriage.
