Husband “Needs His Freedom”

Dear Sara,

My husband has decided he doesn’t want to be married anymore. He said, “he needs his freedom.” We have three kids under the age of eight. He is still paying the bills and has seen a lawyer. I love my kids but I feel like he just dumped everything on me and went on his merry way. I don’t have enough money for anything but necessities. I feel helpless and alone. What should I do?

Dear Jennifer,

You need your own lawyer. Ask friends and family if they know a good lawyer who would help you get through this. If your husband wants to leave then he should give you enough money to live on and then some. It’s not all about him. It’s time to think about what kind of future you want. Do you want to go back to school? Would you eventually want some kind of job? Don’t let your husband dump on you and just sit there and take it.

    Once he realizes the grass wasn’t so green, do not be surprised if he comes crawling back. You should think long and hard before you consider taking him back. In the meantime, figure out what you need to do to take care of you and the kids. Dont be afraid to be assertive and stand up for yourself during the divorce. It’s your future you need to be thinking of. I wish you the best!
