Yesterday I found out some very upsetting news regarding my aunt. She called me since I do her insurance and said she had to cancel her home policy, so I was like why??? Then she drops a bombshell her husband of 17 years who I knew well and loved also left her months ago and now she is losing her home and may be homeless! She lives in a very small town where there a few jobs. He was the breadwinner and she took care of the house and him. The thing is that he gave her now warning he just went to the store and never came home and then she got divorce papers in the mail. She found out he has been having an affair. He was suppose to keep up on the house payments and and utilities but did none of this. He also left her without a car for a month so she could not even look for a job. He pays her $125 a week spousal support but since he did not pay the bills and he had them forwarded to his new address she did not know they where not paid and she lost her electricity and then her hot water! So then she had the little money she had to pay them. She finally found a job making only $200 a week as she can not drive on the highway as he finally dropped off the truck but the breaks are not safe and she can not afford to have it fixed. She is 51 so she is has shoulder problems now so she can not go back to waitressing. I feel awful if I was not moving I would have her move in with us. The bank is forclosing on the house soon and to top it off his sister has been calling her leaving all kinds of nasty messages saying they are having her monitored....for what I do not know as she does not drink or do drugs and they do not have kids. I know there are two sides to every story but this just stinks!
