My response:

Why are you paying her bills? Oregon is a "separate property" State. You're not liable for her charge cards, etc., unless your name also appears on the credit card application and charge cards.

what do you mean she "makes bills"? you mean she gets credit cards and charges stuff? mail order? something else? you need to be more specific.

If the credit cards are joint accounts, you are liable and your credit could suffer if you dont pay them. If she opened them in her name, youre OK.

sorry to hear about your Wifes condition,
