My DF has a MAJOR gambling problem, he's gone twice THIS month, behind my back and spent 150$ I know it could be worse, but honestly.. We have 3 kids, all in diapers that we're trying to raise on a minimum wage job, behind on truck payments, owe my cousin money, and need to save so he can take his butt to college.. What would you ladies do?

 I'd leave or throw him OUT. I would not put up with that BS. There's no way a family with 3 kids can live on minimum wage. Go home to your family, you'd be better off.

um yeah, a gambling problem is pretty much a deal breaker, so...

I feel you! My hubby has done it. I have no advise. Leaving a man you love over an addiction on the chance of free money is just, idk... I couldn't leave MY hubby over that. He is perfect for me in every other aspect. I just made him feel like an ass, which that is a jerk move. He hasn't done it in a while, but I'm always scared he will do it again.

 He's a great dad, and works really hard for us, he feels so bad after doing it, yet does it again.. I need to get a job, I hate worrying about finances then he pulls this crap..

 I don't want to leave him over it, and I do make him feel like an ass then feel like a bitch for it too lol.. He already beats himself up about it so much

If he wouldn't go to gamblers anonymous to get help or refused to turn over all money to me to handle then I would probably leave if it was causing a huge strain on our finances. If it's a once in a while thing I would try to budget for it. It all depends on how.much money and how often he was doing it.
