Thanks to all your support I told my dh about the huge credit card debt I have had unbeknownst to him. He was stunned, then angry, but I think we are past that and he has accepted that it is just not my problem! The debt came from trying to support the family eventho I work full- time. He gets obsessed about money and I never wanted him to know we weren't making it but then the debt snowballed and when we decided to refinance I confessed. Anyway, there is not a lot of light at the end of the tunnel-now we are both depressed but I had to start crawling out of this hole somehow!

Now that dh knows about all the debt, now you both can sit down and work out arrangements to get the debt paid off faster. I'm sure it's a huge relief for you to get that weight off your shoulders. Now it's time to be a team!

Good luck! Everything will work out!
