Welcome! I'm glad you're here with us. My ex from years ago was a gambler. I thin it's a safe bet that you'll never see that money. Is there any way you can cut him off from access to money. It's yours, after all. He probably won't like it very much, but he can't gamble it away if he can't get to it.

Hi I know its not easy as for years I have put my wife through the exact same thing, although he won't like it you need to change your online banking details and your card pin numbers and I know over time he will try to get them off you but you have to persist, too many times I convinced my wife to ive me them and I wouldnt gamble again. I can tell you that he probably does not mean to hurt you by gambling and he probably always has the intention of paying you back although it will never happen. Cutting access stops the problem but not the cause, you need to find out the reason for it, if its boredom try and get a hobby, or something else that exits him.
