Quarter of UK Consumers Have No Knowledge of Partner’s Pay Finds New DiscountVouchers.co.uk User Survey

Over a quarter of UK consumers has no knowledge of how much money their partners get paid according to new research this week. The survey, conducted by leading money-saving website DiscountVouchers.co.uk, found that over 25% of people know nothing of their loved one’s salary.

The DiscountVouchers.co.uk survey uncovered that 27.25% of UK consumers doesn’t know how much their partner makes, while 100% more women have personal bank accounts than men. Eight percent of women keep money in personal, secret bank accounts versus four percent of men.

Further to this the DiscountVouchers.co.uk survey also found that 43% of women lie to their loved ones about what they spend on clothing and outfits, versus 17% of men. The poll revealed that guilt was the main reason for lying to a partner in this way.

The voucher codes website polled consumers on their spending habits and uncovered that 40% of people regularly read a loved one’s personal bank or credit card statements. Contrary to that however, 10% of respondents don’t even bother looking at their credit card or bank correspondence at all.

Psychologist Dr Penny Goldsbrough comments: “We see a lot of this behaviour among consumers, and often it is most common in people with low levels of self-esteem and fear of the unknown. Opening a partner’s bank statements or credit card details implies a major lack of trust, as does having private bank accounts.”

Dr Goldsbrough continues: “Being cagey and secretive about finances is a maternal trait and so if a person has had a mother who lied about money to a father then it’s likely it is passed on to the offspring. Many people feel levels of guilt about spending money but conversely the need to spend money for therapy purposes is very common indeed.”

DiscountVouchers.co.uk helps Brits to save using money off vouchers for more than 800 of the country’s most famous on and offline retailers.
