i think the best thing you can do is to be honest. if he really is going to divorce you over money, you shouldn’t be with him anyway, and in that case, if he does divorce you, courts will make him help you pay for your kids needs, and your utilities etc, based on how much he makes compared to you. that’s the worst case scenerio, and it might be better than your $40,000 debt. start by writing down all expences, devived between you, then write how much he makes and how much you make. also, have your kids start making money for themselves. there is no reason you should go into credit card debt when your college aged kids can support themselves, i’m 23 and have supported myself since i was 18.
