After suffering for years in my marriage with no change in my husband's behavior, I'm now planning a divorce.
My husband loves gambling very much. He doesn't care about how to get money, but he's always spending money. Now we have many debts we even can't pay. But my husband doesn't care about our debt caused by his bad habit. I am the only one who cares about taking care of our children, getting money and all things in our marriage. It's as if I live for myself and my daughter.
I have been waiting for his change for about 7 years. I always tried to change my own behavior, and I always pray to God and ask God to give me a way out. I'm so tired. My husband's family also doesn't care about his behavior and always judges me. Actually, my parents never gave approval for me to get married to him, but I didn't obey what they suggested. So we married without my parent's approval. Yes, I regret it.I can't fix this marriage and my husband's behavior, but I am afraid of sin if I plan to divorce him. Please share with me your opinion about this. Thank you.
What do you think of this situation? What does scripture tell us about divorce? What resources are there for wives who are dealing with gambling husbands?
