Things haven't been great for a very long time.We stayed together 'for the children'.Its not working and seems to doing more harm than good.
What i don't understand is-if we split,how on earth would I cope money wise?
We privately rent,would we(myself and 3dc)be able to stay in the house?I work part time but in the evening,so that wouldn't work.I'm looking for day work but there's nothing around.
I don't understand how any of it works?
