My husband and I are in the process of separating.
Today I looked at some horrible rentals & visited centre link.
The lady I saw there informed me we could fill out 'separated but under one roof' forms. Filling them out was mind boggling but it has opened my eyes to daily tasks that need to change immediately to 'really' be separated (like making DH wash his own clothes & cook his own meals)
I can't decide wether to leave ASAP (a friend has offered us a room for the time being) or stay for a bit & try to implement these changes.
I feel like it would be better for myself & my daughter to stay & sort out everything out (child support, finances, assets etc) but can see my husbands heart is breaking & kind of feel like I'm rubbing salt in the wound.
He's not abusive or dangerous & I am actually open to getting back together with him if he can learn how to be a good husband & care for my needs.
Has anyone here separated from a husband they didn't hate, from a good father who was just a rubbish partner? I really don't know what I am doing.
