Financial infidelity can mean many things. I have talked for a long time about the important of being on the same page financially with your spouse. It is so important to be open with each other as far as your finances go. If you are not doing this together, you are almost surely not going to be successful. For this show I have a guest that shares her story of financial infidelity, a spouse who was hiding a gambling addiction. See the full show notes here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/. She wanted to come on the show to share her experience so that others in similar situation would not feel so isolated. A lack of support when faced with a spouse with an addiction can be a big obstacle to getting help. She shares her story along with resources where you can turn for help if you are dealing with addiction in your family. We also discussed what she did to protect herself financially, and in her recovery, so that she can thrive after a worst-case financial scenario like she experienced. I would hope that no other listeners and readers are going through something as difficult as this, but as we discussed in this episode, it is unfortunately more common than we think. Hopefully this show can reach those who could benefit from hearing this doctor's experience.
