We haven't done any paperwork, however, we are going to get a divorce. We've been married for 18 years. I can't afford to live in the house alone and he wants to build an extension so that he could be there to help out with kids so that I can work. When I asked if he would be there if we sold the house and I moved into a condo or something else, he stated that he would not be there to fit in with my schedule and that he would just see the kids every other weekend and possibly once during the week. My kids are 12, 9, and 7 and obviously still need someone to take care of them and they still need their Dad in their life. I feel that he is emotionally blackmailing me by saying he will only assist more with the kids if we build an extension and still live in the same house. Building the extension will eat up most of our equity. I am currently waitressing and make most of my money at night. I realize that it is time to get a day job, and could supplement with waitressing when he watches the kids.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
