    Many spouses are cheating – financially

    By Katie Lobosco NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — If you’re keeping financial secrets from your spouse, you’re not alone.  One in five Americans has hidden a purchase of $500 or more from their significant other, according to a new study from CreditCards.com.  And an estimated 7.2 million Americans have a bank account or credit card that their spouse doesn’t know about.
