How do I find out if my husband has a secret credit card?
You won’t have complete information if your spouse borrowed only in his or her name, as a secret card will not show up on your credit report, so ask your partner to pull his credit report as well, and read it together. The text alert and email alerts are usually one of the first things we tell the spouse to do.
Can you legally hide money from your spouse?
Whatever the reason, hiding assets, income and debt is not only unethical; it’s also illegal and subject to severe penalties IF discovered. But even so, the burden of proof is often on the spouse with less financial resources (typically the woman) to prove any such unscrupulous behavior.
Should husband and wife have separate bank accounts?
Separate checking accounts mean money may not be touched by others. Separate accounts allow each partner to retain their financial independence and spend or save how they want. That, in turn, may lead to more harmony in a marriage if each spouse doesn’t feel as if he or she has to justify spending habits.
