What do you do when your spouse develops a chronic illness? When that person can no longer support his or her half of the expenses?

A client called the Long Island Marriage Counseling Center at Huntington, NY with that story and my heart went out to her. She sees their extra money going for living expenses, eating a big chunk into their retirement savings. What to do?

I helped her work out a plan to lower expenses and even shut down the heat in the main part of the house… anything to conserve capital. And then we worked on her feelings – She felt angry, frustrated and helpless… not at her mate but at her circumstances. As she worked toward acceptance, she began to develop some new resources and think more flexibly. That was the silver lining.

If you have a similar issue and want to discuss, drop me a line to the right. I would love to hear from you.
