Wisconsin residents who are considering a divorce should be aware that it is not uncommon for money troubles to lie at the root of their marital difficulties. Recent studies have produced some revealing statistics relating to marital financial issues.
It is surprisingly frequent to find spouses who feel that it is acceptable to leave their partners out of financial decisions. About 20 percent of married people said that they would make a purchase of $500 without informing their spouse of it. Surveys find that approximately 6 percent of all married people have opened a bank account that was hidden from the spouse. About 10 percent of all spouses describe their partner as financially controlling, demanding unfair domination over the couple's economic affairs. It is also regrettably common for one spouse to hide assets from the other.
