Lying about money….

My husband wants to have a joint bank account, that doesn’t bother me what bothers me is that he wants to move all the accounts that I have but what he doesn’t know is that I’ve been lying to him about the amount of money that’s in each account..

I’ve been trying to pay it off and have the amount I’ve been telling him in the accounts but haven’t been able to completely do it.

Should I come clean? If so how… I’m scared it’s going to completely ruin our relationship.. I just don’t know what to do anymore but it’s eating at me inside…

  1. come clean, he probably suspects or knows something so this is the test, good luck

      We only have a joint bank account for bills and our travel account – my money is my money, his money is his money and we each pay half for the household bills. I got totally burnt in my first marriage, lost everything, house, car, credit score. I work for my money as does he and what I don’t want to have to explain what I spend my money on as we have different priorities. As long as the household bills are paid and money put into our account to travel, it works for us. Finances are the one of the biggest reasons for a marriage ending so you need to set out clear expectations at the beginning of the relationship and then check in with each other once a year.

    Come clean. You should be able to talk to your spouse about finances and should not fear his reaction. That’s unhealthy relationship

  3. Just leave him already. You clearly don’t trust him.

  4. Too many relationships are based on $$$.
