Financial infidelity can be defined as the secretive act of spending money, possessing credit and credit cards, holding secret accounts or stashes of money, borrowing money, or otherwise incurring debt unknown or unwilling to one’s spouse, partner, or significant other.Unfortunately in many marriages, infidelity of this sort, is a very present threat to the health of that union.
The good news is that there is hope if you find yourself faced with this situation. We can personally speak to this fact because financial infidelity almost ruined our relationship. However, through prayer and perseverance, we were able to recover from it. To help us navigate this tough topic, we reached out to lawyer and author Valerie Rind to shed some light on this subject.
During a hiatus from a career as a corporate attorney, Valerie Rind worked for a housing authority, where she created its pilot personal finance program for 300 low-income individuals. Under a pseudonym, she was a founding volunteer moderator for the FICO community forum. She writes about personal finance at ValerieRind.com and contributes to other media outlets.
