One More Chance

Margaret and her husband owned a small business, and Margaret was clueless about its operations. Now, they have $300,000 in debt and are being sued.

QUESTION: Margaret in Chicago and her husband owned a small business, and Margaret was clueless about its operations. He used up their savings and borrowed money, didn’t pay his employees, and stole from a family member’s account. Now, they have $300,000 in debt and are being sued. Dave thinks he gets one more chance, and then it’s a deal breaker.

ANSWER: It’s hard to build a relationship with a liar. You need good marriage counseling, and if he refuses to go with you, then that’s a deal breaker. He’s a liar and a thief. You’re going to have to make a life somewhere else under the direction of a counselor if he won’t get engaged in rebuilding trust with you in the counselor’s office.

It’s a deal breaker. This guy is on his last thread. Give him one more chance under the direction of your counselor to come to the table with you and save this marriage.
