H & I finally decided to seperate. The kids & I are hoping to rent a house in the town down the hill. He will still support us financially so I will still be able to be a SAHM. We are both going to individual counseling & he is taking anger management & we will re-evaluate in 3-6 months & go from there. I hope it's okay to post this here, even though it may not be permanent. I started a thread in TAO a week or so ago that has more of the details.

to you Mama. All of my best wishes. I'm sure it will all work out in the end. It's great that you can still SAH with them. Not that I don't hope for a reconciliation but sometimes a family can be happier if the parents aren't together.

Sending you good vibes

We welcome anyone here.

I imagine this has been a difficult decision and hope everything works out, whatever way that may be, for the best.

I feel very lucky to still be able to stay home. I think H's reasoning is that with how much it would cost to put the 3 kids in daycare, why would he push me to get a job? It would be more expensive for me to work than it is for me to stay home. SO I am very lucky. I am homeschooling DS1, so it is nice that we won't have to stop the homeschooling. I have always wanted kids & H has not, so I think he might end up happier iwth us living seperating, but still working together to raise our kids. I guess we'll see. Thanks for your replies.

I had a friend that I went to school with, where her parnets were seperated, but not divorced and lived right across the street form each other. They got along great from what I could see. I just wanted to tell you that it does work for the better sometimes!! Good Luck and take care. And yes you are so lucky to be able to stay home still. I have to give the x a little props on that one!! :LOL

's to you momma!!
I know this has probably been a very difficult decision...but I also know that it sounds like the best decision for everyone involved at this point.
Wishing you and your little ones a ton of peace and happiness.
Blessings.

Thanks mamas for your posts. Every time I think about this I feel sick to my stomach, yet I KNOW this is the right thing. I have to do this not only for myself, but more importantly for my children. I don't want my kids to think hitting is the way to sove things, and I need to provide all of them with positive models for problemsolving, etc. It just sucks that it ever got to this point.
