I'm currently considering whether seperation is even an option, as I have 2 nursing babies (and 3 olders) and no work experience to speak of. I've been a SAHM for 20 years, aside from my midwifery apprenticeship. How have others done it (financially) and survived? School loans? Foodstamps? Welfare? I just don't see a way to make it work, but it's obviously possible. What have others done?
