Denise and David say there was already tension in their marriage when everything escalated during the isolation and restrictions surrounding the pandemic. The couple says they fight daily over money and are now nearly a quarter-million dollars in debt with their business stuck in limbo.

“We were supposed to get all this money coming in and then – Boom! – COVID happened,” says Denise.

David says, “COVID hit us in such a way that we cannot seem to recover.”

“Not knowing when things will turn around for us is unbearable,” says David.
