Thank you for your reply.

You are right on what you said.

Well, yesterday I broke up with my compulsive gambler fiancé and I am devastated. He is too. He threatened to gamble and throw himself from the balcony.

I was supposed to visit him next month in his country but I couldn’t handle the pressure from my family and I decided to stay.

This was one of the hardest things I have ever done as it kills me to give pain to someone I love.

When I said I was scared about his threat that he would gamble he later replied that he would not and he was just acting like a drama queen. He still says he’s cured without taking any treatment.

I am seriously devastated and I think I won’t participate on this forum anymore as I am no longer going to marry someone related to gambling.

It was very nice of you to reply my messages and give me some comfort so I am here to thank you and appreciate your words.

I am confident he can fully quit this addiction and if it depended on me only I would stay by his side and help him in this battle. The problem was my family. Like I told you, they are not that confident and they said they would never accept someone under these circumstances. I couldn’t go against, I can not leave the country with my whole family telling me they won’t let me do this terrible mistake and I would have to break contact.

I hope I made the right decision. 

It is hurting too much and he is still very persistent that I should make my own choices and move to him.
