What is the name of your state? Washington:
Here's a confusing one. I've been married 15 yrs. My husband recently decided to take up a gambling habit.
He charged several thousand $$ on my credit card before I found out about it.

I have since removed him from my accounts and opened a separate checking account.

I don't want to throw 15 years away, we have a 13 yr. old son to think about. We all get along fine, I still love him dearly and don't want to divorce.

My problem. We live in a community property state and I think he has taken out personal loans to support his gambling 'habit'.
I don't want to be financially responsible for his personal loans that he gets and gambles away.

If I get a legal separation, will that release me from the financial responsibility without having to get a divorce?



He doesn't think he has a problem.
When I found out about the credit card, all he could say was that he keeps winning, he just "didn't do it right", as in putting the money back that he started with.
