Just found out that my wife has been lying to me about our debt. This was after getting to the end of dealing with a £15,000 loan and feeling for the first time that we were debt free and ready to actually save.
I ordered a credit report to have a look at the payment of the loan and to see what state things were in, with the plan to save for a mortgage on a house. But on looking at the report I came across 2 credit cards – combined debt of £7k.
My wife denied any knowledge of them. But then later admitted that they were hers.
I'm completely stunned by this. Not only is the dream of being able to save dashed, I now dont know if I can even trust my wife. We've been having problems recently and I think this is the final straw for me.
Has anyone dealt with anything similar themselves? Would be helpful to get some advice. Thanks.
