I want to separate from my husband, but I don't know how I will financially support myself. I have been a full-time stay-at-home mother since my first was a baby, and before then, I was a college student (didn't graduate) working minimum wage fast food jobs. I am currently pregnant with my third. Our living situation is safe, just not happy, so while I'd love to end the relationship now, I feel like I could spend a few months giving myself the best chance of living separately but not in poverty. What should I do?
Separating From Husband
I'm so sorry your post was missed. It must have been a slow month in Single Parenting (probably summer season did that).
I see you are due in the early fall. I think it would be pretty difficult to make such a change right now. How about working on your own happiness as an individual first? Maybe go back to school? Study online to finish your degree and look for a career that will make you happy and give you financial security so you can more confidently and securely make such a life change.
