Financially Draining Significant Others
For those of you who have (or had) a significant other who is really bad with handling money and has gotten you into serious financial hardship (or ruin)... What kept you in that relationship despite what they did? Did they ever change, or did you end up having to take control of the finances, or did you end up leaving them? Are you still paying for it? There's no definitive answer or generalization that I'm looking for. I'm sure everyone has a different story to share about a financially draining or crippling significant other - whether the tale is redeeming or cautionary. What was the cause? Can such people really change? Are there warning signs people should be on the lookout for?
