ASK REAL GUYS
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: If my husband never told me that he has two bills which are in collection, do you think he is in financial trouble?
Steven: I think you probably know the answer to this question. However, the key is, “are you going to effectively do what it takes to find out the truth”? If there are items in collection, you know this is not a good sign. Besides of the financial troubles, he was/is not being honest with you. Either way, this is a huge red flag that should not be overlooked. Ask him directly about it and insist you find out the truth. This is a non-negotiable. Then develop a plan before you are in such an emotional and financial hole that you can’t get out of it.
