The Moneyist: My husband cashed out his retirement and, after 36 years, filed for divorce

Dear Moneyist,

My husband and I have not been getting along very well lately. He is now filing for divorce and has met another woman. About 5 to 6 years ago, he pulled all of his retirement out and spent it. It is gone.

I had no say in this because it was under his name. I worked at companies that did not have a 401(k) so we were going to rely on his for retirement (approximately $50,000). We have been married 36 years.

Our house is in bad shape and we still owe $30,000, plus we have two credit cards with $12,000 each and our Parents Plus loans, which we took out on behalf of our son.
