New. Need advice please! (Posted in another forum as well) **UPDATED**
Long story short, I moved across 3 states to a wonderful new town. I am married with two small children, 2 and 4. My husband came sooner and found a full time job and started living with an old grade school friend. This old friend is a heroin junkie and smokes marijuana like a chimney.
I do not want to put myself or my kids in this type of scenario any longer. Yeah, the house is nice, but not nice enough to put up with living with a junkie. I don't know what could happen and I'm extremely uncomfortable.
I have a very PT job and stay at home most of the time with the kids.
I'm to the point now where I don't want to be here with my children when he is around.
My husband and I will have the $ to get into a rental by the beginning/middle of August. My husband fights to stay here because he wants to "save money". He doesn't want me "pushing" him into a rental he's not comfortable with. . . yada, yada, yada. . .
My question is, if you were in my situation, what would you do?
We are still in the house. I have an appointment on Wednesday to see about moving into a shelter. I have been unable to save enough for a first/last/deposit for an apartment. My husband fails to see that this is not a healthy place for us. He insists upon staying another month. . . I've been crying all day trying to figure out whether to stay here with the father of my children or try and get into this shelter. I am definitely leaning towards the shelter. I don't know what else to do - money is definitely an object : (
