DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband was arrested for fraud and will probably go to jail. I had no idea what he was up to and I’m shocked and furious.
I’ve had to put the house on the market and raid my savings to pay all this money back.
This was on top of grieving for my dad and best friend, and trying to cope with our son’s newly diagnosed degenerative illness, which requires a lot of support.
I feel torn between trying to salvage what is left of my family and being so angry with my husband that I want to cut him loose. I feel completely hopeless and at the end of my patience.
I’m 52 and my husband is 55. I have not left the house in six months, nor contacted any of my friends. I feel as if this will be the end of me.

DEIDRE SAYS: I totally understand that you are devastated but if your marriage was previously strong, at least try to discover why your husband stooped to this.
Talk to him about what led up to the fraud and consider counselling together. See bacp.co.uk.
But do also approach your friends.
They won’t blame you for his actions and you need their support.
