It’s been 3 years since I was last on.
I truly thought we had this thing beat.
We were getting married next September . Now I find he’s just gambled away £16000 . Every single last penny of our wedding money.
I have to tell every one the wedding is cancelled. We are going to have to pay £5500 to the venue, how I don’t know. And he sits there feeling sorry for himself.
I think this time that it’s too personal. He knew the consequences and still did this.
Sorry if I sound bitter and selfish but at this precise moment I feel totally humiliated and can’t even think about his addiction being an illness.
This time it just seems like he didn’t just gamble the money away he destroyed me along with it.
I feel completely worthless.
He had a 5 year self exclusion with the bookmaker concerned but they still allowed him to gamble.
What do I do now?
