OK, so, I just googled "Average house price, New Jersey". In the most expensive areas the average price is just under $600,000. I assume that Joe and Teresa "worked" their way up together. I (think) that I know this because she admits to living in a less expensive area before this house. It wasn't like Joe was a multi millionaire, when they married. In that case I could (kinda) see not asking about finances. If they weren't rich but then all of a sudden Joe gives her carte blanche with the credit cards, what did he say to her? How did he explain all of the extra cash? Any one would ask and I'm sure that her family and friends did! They were building a 5 million dollar mansion and he's a contractor? I'd bet that most of their neighbors are professionals possibly with both husband and wife working. Didn't ANY red flags go up? Did she just think that Joe was the world's best contractor? Maybe he was charging $10,000 a month for his run down apartments! It's beyond me how she could ever justify everything. Didn't creditors start writing and knocking at their door when they "only" owed a cool million or two? Maybe it's possible that she didn't notice the first couple of million but 11 Million! Maybe she can't read! Maybe Joe makes her wear a blindfold and earplugs while tied to a chair in a closet, when he's not home. Weren't credit cards declined? I don't get it but I really don't believe that T didn't have a clue. Joe may have kept her in the dark to try to protect her but she must have know that something was up and yet........ she continued to spend. I think that they should both do a little jail time!
