In Massachusetts, many couples find their relationships on the rocks due to some form of cheating. Whether one partner slept around or even sent lewd texts to another person, infidelity is considered grounds for divorce in this state. But there is a hidden form of cheating that is often looked over: financial. While it may not seem as serious, financial infidelity could ultimately lead to the end of a marriage.
One of the most blatant offenses is one partner hiding money from the other. This is different from having separate accounts. Marriages are all about sharing and trust, and hiding money crosses that line. In the same light, hiding debts from each other could also tear down whatever confidence has been built in the relationship.
