The money in our checking account had our tax return in it. What should I say to him?Any help would be appreciated!

  • Then, I'd ask him why the $140 was taken out.
    Don't accuse him of gambling unless he confirms, then I'd say calmly "you know you had a problem, and I don't want you to relapse and think that was a very bad decision". See if he'll talk to you about it then.

    DO NOT say "you have a gambling problem"...just say you know he had one. He may still have it, but you don't come across as aggressive.

  • Do you have the $140 to play with?

  • No, he took it out for himself since his friend called him to go to a men's lodge club.
