Brits Are More Likely To Tell Partners About Past Relationships Than Sharing Bank Account Details

Sharing bank account details remains off-limits for many couples, with more people willing to reveal personal information; such as the number of previous relationships they’ve had.

New research from Paym, a mobile payment service, found that 40 per cent of the 2,000 people surveyed knew how many previous relationships their partner had had, while only 36 per cent knew their partner’s sort code and account number.

In fact, Brits are more willing to share personal information that was once considered taboo, such as their weight (64 per cent), and their income (58 per cent).

The research also found that women were more clued up than men in terms of their knowledge of their partner’s personal information, with 39 per cent saying that they know their partner’s sort code and account number – seven per cent more than men.

While it is sometimes necessary to share a sort code and account number, it’s important to remember that there is a lot of financial information you should never share.
