(CNN) - Lying about money can ruin a relationship, but couples still do it all the time.

Three in 10 adults who are married or living with a partner admit to committing some form of financial infidelity, including hiding purchases and splurging on big-ticket items without discussing it first.

This is according to a report by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Some have gone even further.

According to the survey, seven-percent have kept a work bonus or lottery winnings under wraps, four-percent have secret savings or retirement accounts and another four-percent have withdrawn a significant sum from a joint account on the sly.
