My husband is a great father and husband. Very active in our church. A hard worker. But, he likes to spend money. He charged almost $5000 and hid it from me. And then he was laid off and had to tell me because he no longer had a way to pay the bill. He has given up all credit and debit cards, and only gets an allowance from me. We have been going to a counselor. He still thinks that I should just let it go, pay the bill as I can, and never mention it again. I think (and the counselor) that he should be inconvienced in some way and help pay this bill off in ways other than his normal paycheck. He doesn't think so. He thinks as long as he is no longer spending money and has no access to spending, things are fine. This is driving a wedge between us and I just want it to go away. I pray about it every time I pay that bill. I hate having it. We had so many plans for this year, and I feel like he has messed it all up. We have 3 kids too. Just praying that he starts helping with this debt, because I feel like it is burying me.
