trying to deal with an unfaithful husband who was found out 4 yrs ago and is also a gambler who recently "lost" over $4000.00. Should I stay or what?

I am not completly convinced that he has cut all ties with the affair even though he says he has somehow do not believe it. Previous gambling trouble let us to have to sell our house and were in financial ruin. He has now repaired our credit but has recently "gambled" away this money. Is it possible that he is stashing it away and pretending to gamble it is what I ask myself.

  • Get rid of him if you cant trust him. It isnt a relationship without trust

  • He has done 2 out of the3 no nos in my book, an affair and an addiction. I would be done especially since he tried to change and lost everything again. I doubt he is stashing it away either way keep your eyes and ears open.

  • It is time you leave him. Unfaithful and a gambler. What next. "I am gay"? You can do bad all by yourself.

  • Look at the what you said. You have so many doubts with this man. You do not trust him, and you know it. If you can not trust him, I would leave. Whether he is gambling or hoarding the money, it does not matter. In the end, you are going to get burned again and again if you stay with him.

  • Every one of us should have "deal breakers" when it comes to relationships. Keep in mind that even the Bible that says divorce is wrong, allows for it in the case of adultery. I know you probably feel like you love him and a huge part of you wants to make it work and doesn't want to let go, you might actually be in love with the person you thought he was...not the real him. Also, the "right" person who would make you happy could be right around the corner and you might miss out waiting for this guys to change when he has to want to. Just a thought. Hope it helps! :)

  • My question is "Why would you stay"? Seems to me that you are putting yourself in a situation that really isn't necessary.
