Remember to protect your identity in a relationship
As one of the fastest-growing crimes in the country, identity theft is an increasingly important concern. And it's not just the crime of strangers; identity theft committed by family, friends, and acquaintances happens more often then you would think.

Candid conversations about your financial and credit history can help couples get on the same page, but compromising one person's identity for the benefit of the other can doom the relationship. Here are steps you can follow to protect your identity within your personal relationships.
