Couples 'set aside secret savings'

While most people would agree that honesty is the key to a good relationship, it appears there may be an exception to that rule when it comes to money.

A new survey has revealed that 12 per cent of Britons in a relationship have a pot of money that their partner does not know about.

Of these, 24 per cent said they kept a secret stash because of fears that their partner would spend the money.

The poll, conducted by MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, forms part of ongoing research into the ways Britons spend and save their pennies.

Mark Pearson, chairman of the website, said: "It appears that there isn't anything too suspicious about people keeping money a secret from their partners, as many said it was due to the fact the money they had hidden was to be spent on their other half."
