OK, deep breath, and here I go.
I'm a single parent now. My husband has just left after four and a half years together. I don't know what to do now.
He's always been the primary earner and since my son's birth in 2010, I've been a stay at home mother. We are (were) renting a house at the very top of our affordability bracket. Now that he's gone I'm going to have to move into my son's room and rent out our old room to a stranger, just to have enough money to keep a roof over our heads. Soon I'll be eligible for ss, but not anywhere near enough to cover it. And I can't move somewhere more modest for us to live alone, because as a single mother with no employment and expired qualifications, I won't be approved for a property.
I'm not even sure where I'm going with this. I just hate that he did this to us and I'm really, really hurting.
