As Valentine’s Day fast approaches, a new online survey suggests Canadians aren’t always open to their sweethearts about matters of the wallet.
The Leger survey of more than 15-hundred people was done for Credit Canada and the Financial Planning Standards Council. It found that 36 per cent of those surveyed have lied about a financial matter to a romantic partner.
And 34 per cent of participants said they’ve kept financial secrets from their current romantic partners. Personal finance educator Kelley Keehn says it’s important for couples to be open about their finances and goals.
