My husband is keeping our home, which I cannot afford on my own. So I am forced to move out and find a new place to live. The home that we are currently in is very nice, great neighborhood, great schools. We moved there so our daughter could have a good life. I can't afford a great place in a great neighborhood. I can afford a nice house in a not great area not great school. Or as my stbx demands, keep her in the school where she is and that I would be responsible for driving her there and back everyday, which is a problem especially if I take on a second job. Of course if I move to a good neighborhood good schools that would be ok with him, but he doesn't want to give me more money so that is possible. It may be the only way I can keep her in a nice place would be to share a house with my parents. I know it has advantages, the biggest of course is that my daughter would be well taken care of, I could take on another job or go back to school and have their support and I could actually save money and still afford to do fun things with my daughter, maybe even a vacation. On the other hand, I am 40 and hate, hate, hate the thought of having to live with them. Everyone keeps telling me to discover who I am without my husband, I don't know if I can do that while living with my parents. I know this would be somewhat temporary and probably best for my daughter but not best for me. I have always put my daughter first, part of the problem in my marriage, should I swallow my pride and accept their offer or try to make it on my own?
