Falling apart
Wed, 12-25-2013 - 7:41pm
  • I got a great new job, and my H and I moved to a new state and bought our first home 3 months ago.  Now he tells me he wants a divorce, he's moving back home, and taking our 8 year old son!  We've been together for 21 years, married 17.  He says he's not happy and wants to return with our son to their "roots."  My son says he hates his new school here and wants to move with his dad.  They are going to move his parents in so that my son will have 24/7 child care.  I have no support system here and work 60 hours a week.  I have always been the primary breadwinner.  I'll be stuck alone in a 5 bedroom house in the middle of nowhere with no equity in the house.  I'm falling apart and I'm afraid.
