Renting a house before separation


#1

I have been planning to leave my husband. I have rented a house and partially furnished it in preparation of leaving. My husband has somehow discovered that I have this house and is telling me that I have screwed myself by doing so. I have not paid for the house from marital funds. I have money left to me from my grandmother and any and all bills related to the house I rented have been paid from that money.

Can you please tell me if I’ve broken some rule or law by preparing to leave? I have 2 children who need a place to live and I didn’t want to move into an apartment, so I rented this house.

Any legal issues you can see in regards to this situation?

Thanks.

No, you have not broken any law by preparing a separate residence for yourself.
