How do I plan to leave this situation? I work PT, will go FT by 7/10. The house we rent is in both our names & he won't leave, so I must. Truly, I have to get out of this relationship. How do I plan without him knowing? What steps do I take? He's not physically abusive, but mentally and emotionally he is. Also, he's an alcoholic who admits it but will not stop drinking. I have two daughters (16 & 12) who know this is bad and want out too. Friends and family have told me but I was desperate. Now that doesn't matter but I don't have the finances, I don't know how to take all of my things in a day (!) while he's at work. I need a plan of action but am coming up with too many thoughts to put anything in order.
Thanks for any input/feedback
