Personal Finance or Joint Accounts?
“YouGov’s research shows the majority of couples (62%) keep their own bank account throughout their relationship, and 22% have personal money set aside in some other form (i.e. not in a bank account).”
“One in fifteen people in a serious relationship (7%) admit that they have money secretly set aside that their partner doesn’t know about. One in fifty (2%) have a bank account that their partner doesn’t know about - coming to a total of one in eight (13%) who have finances set aside which are hidden from their partner.”
