New house


If you both can sit down and have a mature conversation about seperating than do it and since you have the child (if hes willing)you should stay in the house but you should also pay all the bills that comes with the house, if neither of you can afford to do that then you need to sell the house split the profit and seperate. but make sure its a written agreement.


Thanks for the feedback. knowing my husband he would not want to leave and i could not afford the house all to myself. we would just have to sell. so what do we do in the meantime, until it sells/both stay in the house together?



Dear Taken:

Greetings. Despite the small amount of time in your marriage, you may be eligible for some alimony to help you pay for the home. Thank you.

my husband and i have been married for one year and things are not working out between us and hasn’t been since we have been married. there are a lot of jealousy issues and distrust between us. we have tried counseling but to no avail because my husband doesn’t believe in them.

we recently purchased a new home (big mistake on my part) and now things have increasing gotten worse. we have talked about divorce in heated arguments but have not acted on them.

i dont want to leave the house/i just don’t know where we would begin with separation. would we have to sell the house right away before we separate? or do one of us move out now? Its not a violent situation just very distressing and stressful. we have no children, but my teenage daughter lives with us.

where do i began please?
