POLL: Until Debt Does Us Part

Friday, November 14, 2008 - 12:01 AM

A reader writes... Q: I got married last year without ever telling my wife that I have $30,000 in credit-card debt. We have one joint account, but we also have separate checking accounts. Should I tell her about my debt? Or just keep paying the bill quietly and hope I can bring the balance down?
POLL: A debt is brought into a marriage without the spouse's prior knowledge. You need one person to help straighten this out, and that person is...
 
73% (1018) A good financial planner.
 
2% (34) An understanding banker.
 
14% (199) A divorce lawyer.
 
10% (143) A guy with no neck who does his best work in a back alley.
1394 people have voted in this poll. (This poll is not active.)
