Moving out


I also have been offered the oportunity to live with a married couple. The same questions asked in my previous post apply to that situation. Would I be better off just finding a small apartment for myself and living alone? It would obviously be a bit more expensive, and I’ll be trying to save some money to help my wife buy a house if/when the divorce is final.


Dear craigborg:

Greetings. Wow…buying your wife a house is nice, since you are planning to divorce her. Now, let me stop straying from the question - yes, living with an unmarried female (even if she is lesbian) may pose a problem for you if your wife seeks alimony. I would advise you to live with the married couple or by yourself. Best of luck.

I am a male leaving my wife. I have been offered a place to stay by some friends. My question is whether living with 2 females may cause problems with litigation in the divorce. The friends are lesbians in a committed relationship (they have been together for 3 years), but I don’t want to create possible future problems for either them or myself. There has been no infidelity in the marriage on either side, but I don’t want to create the impression that it has/will occur.
