How to deal with my husband?

He keeps wasting money we desperately need on lottery tickets and online gambling. We can barely pay rent as it is. Life has become so stressful it’s like a nightmare.

    If you have already talked to him about this then it is either ultimatum time or intervention time. Good luck.

    Divorce him before he drags you into a financial abyss.

    Well. . . divorce him unless he agrees to get help for his gambling addiction.

    He must go to meetings and show proof of stopping it.

    Financial counseling and gambling counseling is needed immediately.  He should not have a card on the checking account to withdraw money.  You will need to take over all bill paying.

    Leave him and tell him you aren't coming back until he stops gambling. See which is more important to him.

    He's a gambling addict. Put your foot down, tell him if he doesn't stop, you'll leave. He should attend Gambling Anonymous. Tell him you can't continue this way by living with an irresponsible person and that he needs to get his act together because he's making your life miserable.

      As much as I hate to agree with this, I believe this the best choice. She will go through hell trying to change that habit in him. By the time she will realize it’s too late she will be deep into debt with kids on hands and nowhere to go. he doesn’t care about how it affects you
