A new study finds around 44%  of adults in the United States admit they've committed financial infidelity against their spouse. 

Ted Rossman with CreditCards.com says more than one in four claim it's worse than physical cheating. 

Rossman says, "What really hurts people is when the trust is broken. Then, you think, my gosh, I thought I knew this person and they have all these financial secrets. What other secrets might they be hiding? That's a path you don't want to go down." 

He says men are more likely than women to admit financial infidelity.

He says Millennials are more likely to commit financial infidelity compared to Generation X or Baby Boomers.
