I have no idea what to do...(3 Posts)
I have told my husband that it's over. He treats me like crap and never helps me around the house. He moans and whines like a spoilt brat of a child. I do all the child care when the kids aren't at school/preschool and 90% of everything else all while running my own business which I'm trying to grow but have no time left in the day to do it.
I have tried telling him how I feel and again and again he says sorry and he will change but he never does.
I'm fed up and I really don't love him anymore, he's just this annoying person who lives in my house who's sole purpose is to irritate me.
But I have NO idea what to do now. He works full time and earns the majority of the money. I have my own business, and while it does pretty well, it's not enough to live on with 2 kids. We live in an expensive part of the country and we privately rent. Rent of a 2 bed house is more than I earn a month. We don't claim benefits.
I have no idea how to tell anyone, let alone the kids who are 3 and 6 and I have no idea how to leave him, whether my landlord will let me stay on as the tenancy is joint but was based on his income, he said no benefit claimants when we signed the tenancy.
I don't know if I will be able to afford to keep my car, which I need to keep my business going.
I just have no idea where to start, I'm scared and upset and I don't have family near me and I only have 1 friend in the whole world.
Please any advise appreciated.
Hi Melissa sorry to hear this I'm not sure about your exact situation but search Divorce pages on here and Relate has great online advice on how to tell kids etc I think and you could go as a couple to help you through this. Can you get him to leave for the moment? He has to provide for the kids anyway and/or care for them. Get free half hour consultation with solicitor, you can get several of those before deciding to instruct one. Am sure other advice along soon. Good luck stay in touch
