I have been a sahm for nearly two years. I didn't have a lucrative career (well, I didn't have a career period) before becoming a sahm and w/o further education, I don't have any job prospects right now. To add to things, I am currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer and can't work right now anyway. And my marriage will definitely be ending!
Here are some questions for those of you who have BTDT:
1. My husband can't force me to divorce until I'm ready right? Cause I won't have health insurance to deal with this cancer once I'm not on his anymore. My plan is to get well and then get divorced.
2. Is it more beneficial to go to school and let him pay for it while we're still married or will my school be paid for if I'm a single mom with no income?
3. Is it even doable to be a single mom going to school with no income other than child support? I know it depends on how much stbx makes and his salary varies from week to week - we never know what he'll bring home. Would I need to apply for public assistance too?
4. He's about to get a large inheritance - I don't know how much, just that he says it's large. Now before anybody thinks I'm looking to take money that's not mine, let me explain! Sometimes I wish there were no inheritance! But I'm glad it'll be there cause it means my kids might get to go to Waldorf since homeschooling is probably off the table. How does an inheritance work in the divorce?
I have so many more questions but don't even know where to start. This probably won't be happening for at least another year but I'm wanting to get an angle on what things I need to be aware of and how all this may pan out.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
