Guess my financial secret

Our new game, “Financial Faceoff” puts one couple's financial life to the test. Plus, we'll get an update from the couple in our first episode, Nika and Terence.

This week we play “Financial Faceoff,” a new game where couples test how well they know each other’s financial hopes, dreams and bad habits.

Millennials talk more openly and frequently about money with their romantic partners than any other age group. But, they also love keeping secrets. In a recent survey, 24% of millennials reported not telling their significant others about money, bank accounts or spending. The biggest secret keepers were men (15%) and New Yorkers (22%).

If you want to tell us a story about the financial secrets you’ve kept from your partners, send us an email at uncomfortable@marketplace.org or use the form below.

Plus, we get an update from Shawnika Giger and Terence McPherson, the couple we met in episode one.
