Husband’s Money Mismanagement Gets Couple Evicted Wife Wants A Divorce
Boy do I ever relate to this. I don’t blame her one bit for dumping his sorry ass. My ex (fiance) was a financial drain. She should divorce this guy.
Letter to Dear Abby, July 2014:
- My husband and I have been married for 19 years. We have had our ups and downs, but the last few months have been hell. My husband lies about having paid bills.
When I ask, “Have you paid the rent?” I mean “in full,” not a partial payment. We have now been evicted for nonpayment of rent and are living in a hotel. Utilities have been cut off because of his partial payments and his lying about their having been paid in full, and I’m tired of it.
It’s not just the two of us who have been affected because of his mismanagement of money, but also our two children who are caught up in this mess.
I’m not one of those wives who sit around not knowing what’s going on with the finances. I have bills I pay for the house, too, and after they are paid I give him money to pay other bills.
I am sick and tired, Abby, and I want to divorce him. What other choice do I have? The “for richer or poorer” thing is no longer working for me. How much should a person tolerate before walking away from marriage?
— HAD ENOUGH IN TENNESSEE
Dump his broke ass, honey.
