I'm in such a dilemma right now. I want to move out of the house that my stbx and I built together and moved into one week before he left me. It's painful for me to be here...it was supposed to be our dream house. The house I thought we would grow old together in. Now that I am 100% sure that there is no hope for reconciliation I don't want to be here anymore. I've been looking for apartments for my daughter and myself...and I've actually been excited about having a place of my own for the first time in my life, but the hard truth is that I can't afford much in this economy and I am actually better off financially by staying put and letting my stbx continue to pay the mortgage (which he will be doing either way). I'm also worried that if he moves back into the house he might decide to stay and not sell it and then I'll have to go through the drama of having to get to buy me out etc..... I just don't know what to do. I'm trying to make smart decisions. My heart...my gut...tells me to get out of this house. But my head is saying to just stay here. The other aspect is that I'll have to leave behind at least 50% of my possessions. This house is 2800 square feet. I just don't know.
