    My ex ‘wasn’t good with money’ (my words). As we were only dating we kept our own accounts, although I did most of the grocery shopping and paid the cable bill. At one point I mentioned I’d kept enough in savings for first months rent, just in case. His response was that _he_ could have used the money (um, I earned it), to pay bills. Yes, and then we wouldn’t have it as a back up. Because I had 0 interest in moving in with HIS dad & step mother. No way I’d subject my family to trying to live with him!!
    I am in a good place in my life & financially since that ended. But it will affect money choices in future relationships.
    He did end up having to live with his dad for a while, and other friends, before mutual friends stopped updating me. I wish him well, but there are more interesting topics of conversation.

      If I was dating someone who I didn’t think was good with money, I wouldn’t pool money with them either!

    Interesting article. A quarter of some respondents say financial infidelity is worse than physical? A quarter of some? Is that like being 100% right 25% of the time? Again I enjoyed the read and also had to ask about this. Can you elaborate? 🙂

      Ahh corrected. I’m pretty sure the survey results are biased, or maybe only answered by people who have been burned financially. But that’s what the survey says!
