Just tell your wife the truth and be honest about what you plan to do in the future.
money can be made in the future only if you learn your mistakes. If you don't, even you have lots of money eventually you lose them.
Good luck. Not the end of world even if you lose everything. In other countries people lost everything when there is war, government changes, natural disasters.... people starts all over. So you have not seen the worst yet.
someone lose money and you happy? wow. you will get it someday much worse. karma is real dude.
Computer drives down pick up cheap shares that has stop loss then go back up. Pattern common. They see shares listed at stop loss price.
