The time following Valentine's Day has always served as a reminder that Spring is on the way. The days are getting longer, the birds and the bees are doing their thing, and people everywhere are thinking about future travel and finances. Something about the Spring causes us to look to the future, which can sometimes mean assessing any less-than-ideal financial behaviors.
A recent poll from the National Endowment for Financial Education shows that 43% of adults with combined finances who are also in a relationship admitted to committing an act of financial deception.
