Did you know that credit card companies know more about your marriage than you do! President of Google Marissa Mayer claims that credit card companies can predict a divorce almost two years before it happens, and with an accuracy of 98%! Amazing, right?
So what is it that these companies know and you don't? The fact is that your credit card statements and bank statements hold information that you ought to carefully go through regularly. If your partner is cheating on you, the bank statements and credit card statements are enough to reveal the truth.
Any expensive meals paid for by credit card, purchase at gift stores, sneaky online transactions, air tickets paid for by credit card etc are a few of the many giveaways that are revealed by credit card statements. Expenses like flowers, hotel rooms, lingerie, chocolates etc are visible on credit card statements if paid for in plastic. But what if your partner uses cash?
Go through the bank statements to keep an eye on the amount of money going into the bank, the withdrawals and your family expenses. If there are any unexplained shortages, you should be asking questions immediately. Like everything else, this little bit of "finance-cheating-relationship" advice should be taken with a pinch of salt. Do not go around snooping in his bills and papers looking for an incriminating bit of evidence. Don't jump to conclusions. All we are saying is that you should keep your eyes open and know a sign when you see it.
