Hidden debt from husband
in Debt-free wannabe

Really in need of some advice. I've hidden from my husband that I'm in debt, it was accumulated before I met him and down to living beyond my means (on credit cards). I've been making the minimum payments each month and got it down to £8,000. Don't know how I thought I would ever repay it when I fell pregnant but my prayers have been answered and I'm getting £14,000 in redundancy money. I know I need to pay off my debts and get rid of this stress I've been living with every day. Now I've created another problem as I will have to explain to DH where the money has gone when we do come to use it (house deposit or something). I've told him I'm getting £10k so will need to find £4k somehow. What can I do? I can't tell him the truth as he will be so disappointed in me and I can't live with that thanks!
