In any relationship between two people, deception can lead to an erosion of trust and the relationship's eventual demise. This is especially true when it comes to the relationship between spouses. Within a marriage, infidelity is often regarded as the ultimate act of betrayal and many marriages that are tested by such challenges ultimately fail. It's important to note, however, that not all acts of infidelity within a marriage involve another man or woman.
It turns out that there's another type of infidelity in which, according to a recent study by Today.com and Self.com, a whopping 46 percent of married individuals admit to engaging. So-called financial infidelity is common in many marriages and frequently spouses who hide purchases from a husband or wife don't believe they are necessarily doing anything wrong.
