Spouse of compulsive gambler


This is the first time I post on this site. I am married to a compulsive gambler.I asked him to move out 2 months ago [this being the 3rd time] This time has been the roughest. He won't talk to me, look at me, treats me like this is all my fault.I know it isn't. He is the one gambling away everything. He doesn't see it that way though. Everyone says I should heal myself but I have no idea where to start.

We have been married for 25 years and I would love to save this marriage but how do you do that when he is being the way he is? Will this pass and what will follow? It is so hard knowing the man you love does not want anything to do with you and that he treats you like dirt.I wonder is there a chance for us?

I feel your pain. MY compulsive gambler spouse is the same way. I have come to the realization that its the gambling speaking and that he doesn;t mean it. But he gets so mean and nasty and I feel I am at the bottom of his priority list. I don't have any advice for you, just take care of your self and don't let other people influence you thats the hardest thing. Do whats best for you and your family.
