I Hate Gambling, My Husband Is A Compulsive Gambler!

I am 29 and I have been married for 7 yrs. We have one 7 yr old daughter. My husband seems to be a binge gambler he will do it about every 6 months.He is a airline pilot and is gone a lot on his over nights if a casino is close and he has time he plays black jack and he won't stop until the bank account is drained. Last night I got a phone call from him at 4:30 am and he was wasted and crying because of what he did. He lost about 2000 and our account is now empty. This crap has been going on since we meet but it seems to be getting worse with the more money he makes. I am so sick of it. He buys lottery and scratch tickets like crazy. He has also been getting into the stock market and he has lost about 9000 there. I don't know what to do I am beginning to hate his guts, I want nothing to do with him I hate sex with him and I enjoy it when he's out of town. Should I get out now while I'm still young and can start over? I don't think he will stop he blames me for his actions.

Get a joint account, he puts money into it so that you can use it for bills. Prepare for when he falls down, he needs help for sure. I am in the same boat with my wife. I wish it was easier, I too want to cry.

I'm just scared to leave because I don't know how I could do it. I dont have any family here to help me they are out of state. I work but only when he is home to watch our daughter which is only 2 days a week. If I could work full time I could support my daughter and I but I work at night and don't have anyone to help me.
