Surviving, would you not be eligible for support? Can’t he move out? I have been a SAHM for 22 years, my WH will pay support for the rest of my life. I tried to stay together for my family, but my girls wanted him gone. They were disgusted with him and they are actually happy for me now that we are separated.
Mermaid, I tried to reconcile for my family and because I LOVE him. We were together for a very long time. He was my whole life. I thought he would change and choose me, our family and life. I thought he was a good person who did a bad thing.... that is what I told myself and the girls. I also stayed because of fear... of the unknown, stability and lifestyle. Once you separate, EVERYTHING changes. Everyone in your life is affected. People and family treat you differently. It is sad and lonely. And difficult co parenting. But I am getting stronger everyday.
