God I love listening to married people complain about their spouses

This isn't undirected complaining, it's the complaining of someone who has a spouse with what is essentially an addiction to spending money, and who's probably been similarly addicted herself at some point.

With the support of others who know what she's going through trying to dig out from under her debt and whose spouses have been through the same thing, she may be better able to find the strength to keep on working on solutions to the problem rather than just abandoning her husband to save herself.

She's here looking for support because she wants to stay married to someone she loves but is putting her quality of life at risk, and it's perverse to fault her for that.
