So, my husband is like a casino addict. We live week to week on his paychecks and I'm 8 months pregnant so I can't find a job until after labor. Anyways, every time he goes to the casino he never brings home money and so we'll have to wait for another week to use money. I am annoyed with his actions because every time he said he wont go anymore and he'll give me the money to hold on to, he backs out of his words and I runaway to my parents. I dont know if its even worth it for me stay anymore...

You can't do anything unless he takes effort in actually doing what he says. In all honesty, from experience my father was the same. Casino addict, he drinks he smokes..he never really took care of me. It not a good environment to raise a child. See if he will change when the baby comes. Tell him how you feel. Tell him that he has to step it up because if he hasn't realize it yet. You have a baby coming. It's either he changes, or you and the baby go. If he really cares, he should really seek help in stopping. Addiction isn't something you can stop just like that, its almost wired in them. They would need to seek a professional or a group and take steps to change. Other than this I really dont know what else to say. IF things get worse, remember, it is your life you can take control of it anytime. Do what is best for you and your baby and if that means to leave your husband. Leave. Because, being in that environment will only trouble your baby. It's always the child that suffers in the end. Take care and have a great life. I hope this helps.
