Hi there. I have been married 6 years and my baby daughter is 2 years old. When I was pregnant I found about my husband were giving money to a woman he met over the internet every month. He used 2 loans without letting me know and in debt of thousand pounds. He never apologise me or disclose info on the exact amount of debt he made. I am separated now. It worries me he might get bankrupt or something. He is squandering money. Am I still legally responsible for his debt as a separated wife? Any advice would help. Thanks.

No, you were never responsible for any debt which he took out. His creditors can come to you only if you are party to the loan yourself and from what you say, this is clearly not the case.
