Paper said about $120,000 was taken over 4 yr span, so that's about $2,500 a month extra. I wonder if my husband would notice if I embezzled that much? I'd just buy shoes.

this thing is I can't blame the husband. My husband has no idea what I spend . He doesn't question what I spend. For all we know she could have been telling him she was getting bonuses and raises.

your not very good with your sarcasm sweetie !! my husband and I have very good paying jobs... so no' he doesnt ask what I spend, what I buy . She may have had a checking account somewhere putting the money in there. I still back my belief that he may not have known...

That is how my hubby and I are with money. He has no clue what I make and vice versa . It works out awesome he drives a volkswagen broke down every week and I have a caddy that is reliable. I flip burgers and he is a CEO I think? as long as bills are paid who cares. I really think this whole thing was a silly misunderstanding. She didn't even know it was illegal for all we know.

I respect you being a believer. However, how much could a storage facility pay is all I am saying. My husband kniws what I make, as I know what he makes. With that being said, In my marriage I believe there may have beeb sime red flags. Maybe I am not a believer but am entitled to be opinionated. Thanks for chatting
