PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- This week on Flashpoint: Host and KYW Community Affairs reporter Cherri Gregg asks the burning questions about the money. It's the seed for both love and hate.  Money and financial stability is a major factor in attracting a mate, but it's also the second most common cause of divorce.  The problem: financial infidelity, secrets, omissions and abuse.  Why do people lie or hide their financial situation?  How do you get to the financial truth?  For Valentine's Week, we walk through the flames of money problems in relationships with Dr. George James, a licensed marriage and family therapist, Linda A. Kern, a family law attorney who blogs about love and divorce and Robert and Tunisia Bettis, a husband and wife team that hosts a Couples and Cash boot camp.
