I'm here to get other mother's POV or advice on things. Thanks in advance!
It hurts to talk about the past, so I'll keep it as painless as possible. My husband has a drug problem. I've found a lot of cocaine baggies in the laundry. The latest was a month ago. He's come and gone in and out of our lives for 4 years now. And I want out. I have had a TRO on him for domestic abuse and he pled guilty in court. He got a year probation and DVI classes.
My husband and I have been married for 4 years. We have 3 children; twin 3 year olds and a 1 year old. I am a stay at home mother, but get income from a legal source (lol). My husband is in the union, but has not started yet and has no income. When my twins start school I want to go to school to be an EMT/Paramedic. The tuition cost in the state I live in is not affordable for me. Neither is our living situation. I pay $1,100 for a studio. Yes, my children and sometimes my husband too, live in a studio. I pay for it, not him. But now I want to relocate to Las Vegas. The tuition for an EMT program is around $2,000. The pre schools for my twins are cheaper. And I can get a 2 bedroom apartment for $800. I've explained all of this to my husband, but hes stuck on living here because this is where he grew up. We both grew up here, but I am open to moving as long as it betters our lives. He told me today that he wants a divorce (and I am dead to him) if I want to move.
I don't really know what I'm asking here, but fire away!
