Husband uses all his money on other women

February 28, 2018

Dear Pastor,

I have been married for the past six years, and I am having a problem with my husband. It started after I got pregnant and had a child. Things were very tough with us financially after I had the baby. I went back to work early to help my husband pay the bills.

My husband got a job, but he did not use the money in the house. I lost my job, but my husband is not helping me financially at all. He does not give me a cent. He is using his money to support other women. I could not believe that my husband was having an affair with another woman.

When I spoke to him about it, he denied it. He suddenly became so broke, but had enough money to spend on women. He even challenged me that I could leave, because he would not end the relationship with his woman to please me. He even threatened to leave me and to take away our child.

Pastor, please pray for me. I am having a hard time with this man.


Dear J.G.,

Don't be afraid of your husband. He is acting foolishly. Stand up for your rights. Go and see a lawyer and tell him/her the full story. Your husband is acting as a bully, and you must not lie down and play dead. When things were tough, you played your part. You have worked hard. You ought not to give him the impression that you are afraid of what he may do. You have not been a bad mother, so he cannot get custody of your child.

If he plays the fool and he files for divorce, fight him to the very ground in court. Make sure that you find an attorney-at-law and lay the matter before him/her. You will get the help you need.
