I'm a SAHM with a 3.5 yr old son. I depend on my husband right now for food and shelter. It's hard to leave our house when I have no choice but to live with my 68 yr old mom that I don't get along with on a good day. Divorce is hard. Single mom is hard. Marriage to a husband that is mentally and financially abusive is hard. Don't want my son to grow up like his dad. Don't want to struggle either. Divorce will be expensive, drawn out and ugly. I may lose the assets knowing me. I'm not a fighter. May lose my sanity. Difficult to say. I feel a bit happier to finally make decisions after 10 years of control.
So is it really worth it to be single with the financial struggle and a child?
Better to be in a marriage without equality, love, trust? For the sake of money?
