Lots Of Women Have A Secret Bank Account

A survey, commissioned by Self and conducted by OnePoll found that 64% of women who have a joint bank account with their spouse said they felt pressured into doing it. Maybe that explains why 1 in 5 married women say they have hidden a bank account from their spouse. Why the secret account? 50% of respondents said it was because they liked to have their own money, 48% had a separate account due to fear of divorce, 45% said they had their own account in case of a financial or medical emergency, and 39% said it was because they have their own expenses.
