I've been in a severely controlling, unhealthy relationship for 23 years of marrige. I have two, beautiful little girls with him. Two years ago I finally started the baby steps to get away. He is making it impossible!! We have been seperated for these two years..but living together for finances. I was a stay at home mom for 12 years. Now, I have a job as a Nanny. I agreed to stay a while to help him with bills. He has ruined our credit, can't even begin to pay off debt because we are in the negative with regular bills. Living in rental home we can't afford..he wants to stay...I want an apartment within my means!! Tired of living like this!! Home forclosed..car reposessed, drinking, gambeling issues with him as well. Every time I try to save up for an apartment...he finds ways to get my money. He'll wait until the phone or electric etc..gets turned off and I have no choice. We know when we split up we will each have the girls equal time. He says he will not have to pay child support because he has none to give???? At this point I just don't want to have to help him!!! I'm feeling hopeless here. Can anyone help me with thoughts or direction here?? Thank you for reading.
