I am a hard working 27yrs old husband, I have a job where I make roughly $5000 a month. I also have roughly $30,000 in student loans and my wife has about $75,000 and still counting, she is in medical school. So most of my earning goes to paying rent and bills but we have been able to leave an ok life. A month ago a cowork invited me to a poker tournment at a local casino, they too 1500 each and left with 3000, he sad tts how he supliments his income. my degree is in finance so I am knowledgeable of risk and return, I know I should have know better but my bills were too much so a week ago I decided to take our rent money and see if I could make extra but I lost it all. I tried to go win it back it lost the few extra thousand I took, I was paid on the 15th thinking that I could win just enough to be able to pay my rent but I lost it all.
My wife doesnt know, she thinks I have paid the rent but we have a 3 day "pay or quit" notice it is killing me but I have no other option. I have borrowed enough money from my friend in an attempt to recover my loss. I have stopped playing now i just want to be able to pay our rent, being evicted will disrupt our lives.
I am kindly asking for your assistance, I have made my mistake and I have learnt.
