  • He gambles $40,000 a year and you're dumb enough to stay there and let him drag you down?
    No sympathy from me. Sorry.

  • I'd tell him to either go to Gambler's Anonymous or you're leaving.  That's like throwing away a whole year's salary for some people.  Money that could help your family.  He has a problem.

  • No. You're just dumb for staying with someone who throws away money.

  • Honestly, sigh, this post makes me sad for you. Do you have a plan B? Why are you with such a man who not only has this habit but makes you feel like shit?
