I’m very sorry to hear that.  I can relate to your situation from the side of the husband unfortunately.  I was once a terrible steward of our finances and put my family in some dire situations financially. 

First off, I can say that without knowing your husband or you, I can say from my side I felt awful for how the situation I had caused and was even more frightened that the woman I loved would leave me.

Is there a chance your husband could have bi-polar depressive?  Reason I ask is ADHD and Bi Polar Type 2 go hand in hand and people like that, like me, tend to have serious problems with finances. 

I recommend you both get into counseling, nothing wrong with seeking outside help.  Some churches even offer free marital counseling on a variety of issues. 

I recommend you guys look into this guy Dave Ramsey.  He is not everyones go to guy, but it worked for my marriage and finances.  I know its going to be tough losing your home, but your marriage can rise again from these ashes stronger then before. 

You have to find that original love that you felt for your husband and then use it to understand him.  You have to then be willing to sit down with him and ask him, what can we do to help each other.

You guys are a team and I know that with understanding and a solid plan you both can be better then you once were.
