25 Mar 19% of residents in East Anglia would never tell their partner about their debt
Almost one fifth (19%) of UK consumers would never tell their partner about their debts, according to research1 commissioned by credit information provider, Equifax.
The study gives an insight into the most honest regions of the UK and reveals that nearly a quarter (24%) of Londoners and people from Yorkshire and Humberside are most likely to keep their debt from their partner a secret.
In contrast, individuals in the East Midlands seem to be more open; with only 13% saying they would never disclose the full details of their debts to their partners.
It seems that the early stages of a relationship – after just one to three months – can be the time to tell all for over a third (38%) of those living In the North East. But only a quarter of those living in the East Midlands would do the same.
And while a third (33%) of Scots would share their debt secrets with their partner after just three months, nearly 1 in 5 (18%) of Scots would never tell a partner about their debt.
