Our expert says:
Its not always easy to get or even keep a job, but for a man to only manage 7 months of work in 14 years, MUST be a guy who really doesn't try and really doesn't like work. He's not much of a man if he expects his wife to work to provide everything.
He couldn't afford the luxury of pathological gambling unless you both took care of all his living expenses and gave him money to gamble. Where else would he get it ? DON'T EVER give him ANY money - not even a few cents to get a newspaper.
Why not send him back to his family, who think it's just you complaining unfairly ? If they think he's just fine, they will surely enjoy having him live with them and steal from them, instead of you. Why not divorce him ?
If he tries to blackmail you and force you to spend the rest of your life sponsoring him, by threatening to harm himself - don't accept the blackmail. Its his right to choose what to do with himself, but it is NOT his right to force you to spend your like paying for his luxuries of smoking and gambling and lying around.
You can divorce him, get a court order forbidding him from entering your home or troubling you, and then you can ask the police to remove him ( change the locks ) if he returns to your place.
You're right about his gambling - he has no intention of stopping, and with a generous sponsor like you, why would he need to stop ?
