My husbands like casino more than me.

Today was a bad day, I was so angry and pissed that I felt my blood pressure go high sky today. I am tired of my husband waking up and getting out of the bed and jump in his car and head to the casino do his matchplay. Now I haven't said anything about it until it build up inside me and I told him to choose me or casino, because I am tired of him being gone all day and not spending time with me. Its the only thing he cares about and then later he told me hes getting a divorce, then we began to cuss at each other and I got more mad and started knocking things off, I even knocked off my new flatscreeen tv a 32 inch, I was so pissed I didn't care if it was broke. Then the next thing he said that he wants me to stop playing bingo which the only reason I go was he was never home and the thing is he goes to casino every freaking day, and I only go to bingo once or twice but not often do I go more than once. I told my husband he is addicted to casino and he needs to stop going so much that its affecting our marriage. I mean him wanting to choose casino over his wife, I gave him eight years going on nine in June and to her him say casino is more important thats bullshit to me! Then top that off my sister moved into a apartment and I had let her use a microwave because she hardly had any furniture or anything so next thing I know she had let her daughter take it to her house becuase she had no way to heat things for her kids, which mostly they are at my sisters house. Well she had the microwave for three weeks so I asked her if she wanted to buy it for $20 well when payday came she didn't do it then two weeks passed payday again and she didn't pay me so for the past few days I been trying to go and pick it up, my niece never had the kindness to bring it to me after I told her I want it back since I let my sister used it and she gave it to her daughter. I told my sister I won't help her again because every time I let her use something it ends up at her daughters house just like a tv I given her. I had a horrible day, but I was so furious at my husband that now he understand how I feel about going to casino.

You had a bad day! Your husband has a gambling addiction,I would ask him to get treatment for that or leave,81/2 years is long enough. And quit breaking TV's honey, lol.

He has a gambling addiction. This can get much much worse! You need to decide if you are willing to ride this wave with him.
I chose not too. My ex has filed bankruptcy TWICE. He's almost 50 and has not learned to live within his means.

We talked it out and hes agreed to slow down and I won't go play bingo once a week. Thank you all for the comments.

Hang in there.  Gambling is an easy addiction to get trapped by. You are a very caring person. I'd drop the microwave issue, though... just be careful about lending items if you're not willing to never see them again.. lol. Make peace with your sister to lead a good example... she might pick up on it and improve her own attitude and behaviour.  It's worked for me in simular situations =0)

i know how you feel. but in my case it was my dad. it was years ago when i was 10 and 11 years old, and he would always be around his side of the family constantly and almost every night they made plans to go to the casino and stay out for so long. my mom and i often stayed back, occupying ourselves with tv and so forth. but that's life for you. but it doesn't matter now. i'm happy with a loving husband and two children.
