Lies Husbands and Wives Tell

by Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

It’s no secret that spouses keep secrets from each other.  Some are more severe than others and many involve extramarital affairs.  However, there are lies that are told, that can literally cause a divorce.  Here are some of them:

1.  Lying about a gambling problem or spending money on drugs.

2.  Lying about trust fund checks, secret bank accounts or other income.

3.  Lying about being fired from work.

4.  Lying about past debts like unpaid credit card bills or student loans.

5.  Lying about getting a big bonus or raise.

6.  Lying about supporting a former spouse or former girl friend or boyfriend.

7.  Lying about having kids from another relationship.

8.  Lying about paying household expenses when they are in fact not paid.

9.  Lying about lottery winnings, and online or TV shopping addictions.

These lies break the trust between a husband and wife.  They also cause real problems with bill paying, and wreak havoc on family finances.  If you are the victim, you may be better off single.  For more information about this or other divorce topics, call one of the divorce lawyers at ROBIN ROSHKIND, P.A. at 561 8335 9091 or click on the Firm’s web site at for more information.


The Many Faces of Cheaters

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

You caught your husband/wife cheating.  Now what?  You have two options.  Leave or stay.I hate to boil it down to such a simplistic statement because I recognize the frustration, confrontation, anger, disappointment, hurt, fear and even sometimes violence that results. The emotions of being betrayed are intense and heart wrenching.  What follows discovery of the cheating is either an admission of guilt or denial of same; then there is the blame game.  Or making light of a serious situation. Or remorse and apologies followed by useless promises.  No matter how you look at it, cheating causes marital trouble.

But here’s the big punch:  I am not just talking about cheating as being extra marital sex, adultery, affairs, or romances.  In addition to sex cheating, I am also talking about financial cheating; food cheating; chores cheating; gambling cheating; emotional cheating; alcohol or drugs cheating.  Think about it for a minute.  Some marriages have more than one!

These many faces of cheating can have serious and disastrous effects on a marriage.  Things like financial ruin,broken trust, abandonment, domestic violence.

If you find yourself to be the victim of a cheater, like I said before, you can either leave or stay.  If you stay, hope for change.  If you leave, your life is then under your control.
