I'm going to retire early so dh can continue to support me
I work part time been working at the same job for 9 years. I'm now 60. I have a 35 yr. old daughter from a previous marriage and no children with my dh. We've been married 17 years now. I plan or rather hope to retire at 62. Early is 62, middle is 65 and last is 70. I know I won't get much early but here's the story. I'm in the middle of a divorce. Dh filed last year, it'll be a year filed by Feb and by Oct. this year it'll be 2 years we lived separately. I filed my counterclaim and answer last November. I requested to have his 'no fault' complaint of divorce to be dismissed. I don't want to give him the benefit to divorce as fast as possible so he can marry his bitch girlfriend. All I want is to be awarded for attorney fees. I live in the house, dh lives with his girlfriend and they have a baby together and he's paying me spousal support. Pretty much I am doing a good job preventing him from getting the case going since he has a much less paying job. Full time of course at 11.50 an hour. He cannot prove that my daughter, her husband and their child all live with me in the house and are helping with my mortgage and car payments. It's not counted as cohabitation. I just heard his truck is in danger of repossesion. Sucks to be him. Both our names are on the house and both our vehicles, but I'm the co-owner. So that's that. I hope this year and the next goes pretty fast. Life is good. Ladies I hope you keep your husbands on a leash if you suspect anything. And if he deserts you and finds someone else, get that court order for support and keep stalling his request for divorce. Men like that don't deserve to start over again at such a late age and been married for that long. By the way he's 57.
