A couple of weeks ago, my husband informed me that he was going on a job interview in Florida. He said that if he receives an offer, he will have to move to China for 6 months to train by teaching Chinese students. He has had trouble finding a steady job so we have been under financial strain. However, I never thought he would take a job that would require him to move to China for 6 months. He never discussed this with me and made the decision to go without my opinion, thoughts or concerns. We have seven children living in the home. One has autism and another has learning disabilities. I work part time. My husband and I were separated for a short time last year because of marriage difficulties. We moved to S.C. about 4 years ago from AZ to be near family. He was still in AZ for almost two years before he joined us here. I found out that he had lost money gambling and also spent several hundred dollars in a gentleman's club the night before he flew home to be with us for good.
Now, he is getting ready to move to Macau, China where the gambling is rampant. It is called the Las Vegas of Asia. I am hurt that he has made this decision without considering my feelings. I already have trust issues. He will not even be straight forward with me as to how much money he will be making over there. And he is leaving us with no emergency fund in case something happens. I am about ready to to divorce him. How would you handle this? He leaves November the 3rd and will be gone until April. He will not be able to visit. Thanks!
