I spent the money we saved for our wedding

Dear Coleen,

I don’t know how to tell my boyfriend that I’ve spent all the money in our savings account.

We’d been saving up to get married and putting money aside from our income every month, but when I was drunk with my friend one weekend I went online and spent it all on a girls’ holiday with my friends.

I couldn’t believe what I’d done the next morning but I won’t get the money back if I cancel.

How can I break it to him so he doesn’t break up with me?

Coleen says.

Well, I can’t guarantee he won’t, to be honest – I’m sure he’ll be very angry and disappointed.

You have to tell him because he’s going to find out.

Admit you did something really stupid when you were drunk and that you regret it, then promise you’ll do everything you can to put the money back, including his half.

We’ve all done stupid things, but there’s no point in making it worse by trying to sweep it under the carpet.

Make sure you deal with the consequences straight away – it’ll be less painful in the long run.

In the meantime, make an effort to build his trust again – you might have to do a lot of groveling and make a lot of cups of tea.

And, er, stay off the computer when you’re drunk!
