How do you cope with a partner who has no goals?


He has worked for most of his life and still is and nearly retirement with no bank balance, lives on overdrafts and gambles some of his money daily. There is no chance of a monthly budget. How would you cope with such habits from your partner?

    Hi Sparklea this is a general question sometimes one just never knows what their partner is capable of until it is too late. Thank you.

    It is not for me but your answer sounds helpful.''You don't try and change him - you cannot change anyone else, only yourself!'' Thank you.
