Yet 43% of people don’t know one of the most basic things about their spouses’ finances: how much they make.
Four in 10 married people surveyed by Fidelity could not correctly identify which salary range their spouse falls into. About 10% of those who got it wrong were off by more than $25,000.
It’s not just women, or men, who are in the dark. Both were wrong 43% of the time.
I can see someone not being able to exactly identify their spouse’s income, but to not be within a range? Or to be off by $25k!? Clearly those couples don’t have any communication on budgeting their spending either.
