I'm sitting crying in Tesco car park waiting on the red eyes to go away before I can go in. DH and I seemed to have agreed to separate this morning and I'm so scared for the kids.

Been together 16 years, married 8 DS 7 and DD 5. Things haven't been great to be honest. He's bad tempered, grumpy and pretty lazy. But I just kept on because I could hurt my DC by breaking up. But then they are hurting when they hear us argue.

It came out of the blue this morning we didn't have a big row, he just said he wasn't going to spend the next year fighting, then said it would be best it we separated.

I'm so scared for the kids, I just don't want anything to hurt them. Sorry I'm just spilling out what's in my head but I've no one else to speak to right now and need some reassurance.

You owe it to both them & yourself to have happiness in your
