Is your spouse cheating on you?! Unfortunately, that is none of Bankrate's business. But if she's cheating on you financially, Bankrate is all up on that! This and more, today on

1. Your spouse might be fooling around ... with your finances. How, you ask? Bankrate goes all Joey Greco in this situation.

2. Did you enjoy the free fireworks show last night? I'm glad you did. Because it wasn't free for everyone. In fact, it was pretty darn expensive, and you're selfish for not realizing this. Fortunately, Bankrate is selfless enough for everyone and has brought these costs to light.

3. Do as your forefathers did before you and declare independence! Financially, that is.

4. What are retirees doing all day? Bankrate looked into it ... and is kinda jealous to be totally honest.

5. Congratulations, everyone! You're paying off your credit card debt!
