    Can I also suggest using this time for you put together a really clear exit strategy? As in work out where and how etc details. Get a plan. Just in case you decide.

    Does he work by the way? If he's home with the kids rather than taking them to school what does he do for work?

    Good work you!! One day at a time is fine. If you are finding it difficult to commit to 2 weeks, just don’t make any commitment to a particular timeframe just yet. Just try to find the will power each morning to stay away one more day. The longer you spend doing things on your own and living your own life, the easier you will find it to continue on that way.

    That must have taken a lot to rethink going home. Strong lady.

    Just try to avoid speaking to him, at least for a little while. If you're like me, I use to hear my ex's voice and he always knew what to say!!!

    You're strong, you can do this.

    So many pressures for such a young couple. Do whatever you need to do to be happy and look after after your bubba. Life's too short to waste the best years (and you are entering the best years!) being unhappy.

    Good luck

    Whereabouts are you staying?
    With my cousin. A bit less than 3 hours away.

    I think you'll know when it's right for you to go back, if you do, but until then... Stay strong, and if you're feeling tempted I say hop on to this thread and one of us will be around to keep your eyes on the prize...

    Just a quick question - did your partner understand why you are taking time out? Or has he been dismissive of you/your reasons?

    Neither really. We had a argument about it yesterday. Then he got over it and mainly just gave me the cold shoulder.

    Because he's trying to get his way and apparently he thinks the best way to do that is to manipulate you emotionally.

    Keep it up. He needs to see clearly you arent taking/falling for his $#it anymore.
