Yesterday, I got a call from a sister. She had surgery last year to remove a tumor in her brain. (She has recovered nicely.) Her husband was the one my boyfriend was working with a little bit in a maintenance shop. Til the husband got hooked on drugs and lost it all.
The reasons she had to move, her house was foreclosed on. Her husband had not paid the house payment, car payment, or paid the utilities in over a year.
My sister used her income tax return to pay over $6000 to keep her car. She went and checked on the utilities to see if they qualify up for a couple programs. Come to find out, the family was already set up that way. She has a huge bill for her electrical. Good part, none of the bills was in her name. However, they are in her husband’s name. So, she is still responsible to pay the bills.
Currently she is the only one working. Until, mid August when her job closes down. She works at Sears. The store she is working at, is one of the many Sears stores closing.
Her husband is currently not working. As he can’t keep his job. Due to making too many errors and his drug use. From what I understand it is a painkiller addiction. Due to a back injury. However, the grape vine says he is doing heavier stuff his wife has no clue about.
Can you stay married to someone with a drug addiction?
