How to separate as a stay at home mom
It has not gone missed on me all of the divorce questions here amidst the time of covid. Heartbreakingly, I'm just another tally mark. However, we never married and I'm all by broke without him...so how do I this? My partner and I have been together 13 years and have two children together. We rent. I am at home with the kids. We have accepted all the excuses of why we are hardly sexual anymore; tiredness, other things needing to be done while children sleep, wanting to sleep. But now, my unhappiness has spread like cancer and it's everywhere. It's in the empty promises that I've heard a hundred times and can't stand to hear once more and it hits me when we are going over to a friend's house because I'm so frustrated with having to do everything myself just to get everyone out of the door not looking like a slob! The kids hear us fight, probably the neighborhood does too, it's time for us to call it quits. However, I only work part-part time and I am fully dedicated to raising my youngest without the need of a daycare, nor could I probably afford one. How does one exit an unhappy relationship when you need to be with your kids full time? Going home to my parents house until I get on my feet is not an option. Do I have any options at all?
