I'm about to become a single mom of two kids. From the looks of it my husband and I are going to split. I'm tired of fighting the battle of marriage by myself. When I try to talk to him about it he blamed all our problems on me, even he's betrayal. This is been going on for a couple years now but I kept trying and trying even though I kept getting shot down. Instead of saying we will work on OUR problems he blamed every single one on me.
I'm scared to go out in the real world. I haven't worked in over 3 years. I don't know how I can handle all the finances. The most I could hear I could make here is $11 starting, hell that will barley cover daycare. I don't know what to do. Especially will the economy the way it is, I've been trying to find a job of 3 months now and still no luck. No I don't have anyone to help. My family is no good and his family already hates me this fall out they'll hate me even more.

I am going through the same thing. Right now, my plan is to save as much money as I can and look for a job in a different area. In my town, there are not many jobs that pay over minimum wage, however, if I move about an hour away, there are several jobs that pay more and the cost of living is about the same as it is here in my town. But, I have no idea, how single moms do it, but I guess I am about to find out.

He will have to pay child support &/or split expenses. If you split, make sure you have a legal separation agreement set up and signed so both of you know what has to be paid before you guys go to court. As for everything else, you scale down on everything, just like you would do if you were married and had a cut in income. Get rid of anything that's not a necessity. Make sure your necessities are taken care of, as well as your children. Get assistance if you need it. Then, do what you have to do...that's all you can do.
