    We just made a pact that he wouldn't lie anymore and that I wouldn't check up on his lying statements... 2 days into the pact and more of the same..I don't understand what this is that it is stronger than human relationships

    Hi Ali2,

    Sounds like you are going through a really rough time

    Does anyone in your life know what's happening in your relationship or how difficult you're finding it? There is free face to face professional support in all states in Australia for partners of people who have gambling problems or otherwise you could use the email counselling on the website to get some support. Not sure if you've had a chance to look at the website but I've included a link that provides some advice on what the spouses of someone with a gambling problem can do when they find themselves in this situation. Any questions or concerns just let me know and I will try to help. https://www.gamblinghelponline.org.au/c ... -yourself/

    Can anyone else relate to what Ali2 is going through.... keen to hear others thoughts...?

    Take care Ali2 and keep in touch..
