Your spouse visits casinos more than your home. Lottery tickets are so abundant you could wallpaper your home with them. A friendly wager on the basketball playoffs has become a problem. Your spouse has a gambling problem. In fact, he or she is addicted. Gambling addictions affect the entire family, not just the person with the addiction. Is your marriage beginning to suffer due to your spouse's gambling problem? Do you need marriage help?

Millions of Americans have a gambling addiction. With so many people and families suffering from this problem, you would think finding support and marriage help for gambling would be easy. Sometimes, locating marriage help for families dealing with a gambling addiction can be difficult. This may be partially due to the fact that gambling addictions leave financial and emotional scars. Unlike violence and other forms of addiction, gambling is not as easily noticed outside the home.

Marriage help and support is out there for you and your family. You simply need to know where to look. You and your spouse are not alone. Your marriage can make it through this difficult time, but you will need help and support.

Support for families and people with a gambling addiction is in your area. A well-known organization for gambling is Gamblers Anonymous. This organization or other similar groups can provide rehabilitation treatment and support for you and your spouse.

Churches frequently offer addiction support groups for those interested in recovery. Speaking to a person in the clergy can offer needed support for you, as well. Chatting with someone in your particular faith can have many benefits for your marriage. Often, religious leaders will emphasize the importance of the marriage relationship. This support will help you to endure and keep the strength to continue your search for marriage help.

Educate yourself. Learning what you can about a gambling addiction can be the help you need to continue the marriage. Marriage help can also be through financial counseling. Even if your partner does not agree to accompany you, it is important to learn how to handle finances. The added burden and responsibility of financial responsibilities are on you.

You do not need to divulge personal information when consulting a financial advisor. Simply you need to protect the family's assets while you and your spouse seek marriage help. A visit to a lawyer may be a good idea. You can gain legal advice on how to legally survive the financial strain. Knowing you have done what you can for the family will bring relief.

Find a therapist in your neighborhood by contacting the counseling center in your area. Hopefully, your partner will accompany you to sessions, but if not, you will be able to benefit from the meetings with a therapist. You can release your feelings and emotions during the visits with a counselor. Your therapist will be able to direct you on issues such as assertiveness, self-esteem, and co-dependency.

As you feel better, your spouse will be able to see the improvements. If your spouse has refused to seek marriage help or help for the addiction up until this point, he or she may decide to find help now.

Marriage help is out there within reach. You and your spouse can seek marriage help together or separately. Gambling can take a toll on the entire family, but a gambling addiction can be overcome.
