"If you have never heard the term 'financial infidelity,' it doesn’t mean you don’t know what it is. In fact, according to a recent creditcards.com survey, 32 percent of respondents have financially cheated on their partners. Both finances and cheating can be complex subjects to discuss, even with and, sometimes especially with, those closest to you. Not surprisingly, this topic is pertinent to physicians and dentists because they tend to have more money available.

In hopes that if there are any seeds of financial secrecy in your relationship, you can identify them, you can admit it, and you can begin to weed that garden of your relationship before it gets out of hand. And if you see financial infidelity or the signs of it in a close friend or family member, perhaps you’ll be better equipped to help them make decisions to strengthen their relationship instead of destroying it."

Shane Tenny is a certified financial planner.

He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "Financial infidelity: It’s not about the money, it’s about trust."
