Are we a nation of secret spenders? Without a doubt! As Valentine's Day nears, researchers have crunched the numbers to find out what Americans are -- and aren't -- disclosing to their partners when it comes to spending. The bottom line, according to experts, is that many of us don't do such a hot job talking about saving and spending with our sweeties.

But just how many of us are spending without telling our significant others? According to a recent survey commissioned by CESI Debt Solutions, a large percentage of us are secret spenders, at least to a small degree. Among the 200 respondents, 80% said they spend money without telling their spouse. What's more, 18% have secret credit cards.
