Hi, my name is Susan and I'm a mother of three young adults, 26, 22 &
18. I was a stay-at-home mom for 22 years and I just want tell you what happened to me, I hope that if it reaches 1 woman, I can offer insight to something that I never thought of. I'm now 54 years old, have several major health issues and let tell you what happened. My spouse of 30 years filed for divorce, ironically while I was visiting HIS family in PA , ironic isn't is? lol We were supposed to wail until Siri, the 18 year old takes off to school this fall. I've rejoined the working world at a job that I really enjoy but it has a salary that I cannot possibly survive on; not even a chance. To top it all no benefits. Try submitting resumes that you know will not even be looked at because of the yrs out of work. I interviewed for 3 jobs and got them all. Once I'm able to get in I have a fair shot. My recommendation: NEVER, NEVER become dependent on any one for your basic survival. My dad first and then the soon to be ex. I am trying not to spend any energy worrying about it since I have no clue what's going to happen in the next 5 seconds much less 5 years down the road. I hope that this helps someone look at her life and if the gut feeling is there, listen to it.

I am a stay home mum and I trust that if we got divorced my husband would pay child support. He'd also probably give me money if I had none. We're best friends and I don't feel like freaking out over whether or not we are going to get divorced is a thing for me. I have money put away that would pay a bond if I wanted to move out or he left not because I think it's going to happen but it's just common sense to have back up money in case a high wall falls on him and I have no money until his life insurance comes through.
