Need advice - working mom of three young kids considering divorce

Jen - posted on 08/02/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have three children ages 10,6 and 3 and am considering ending my 13 year marriage. My husband and I have been struggling to be happy together for most of the marriage and I just can't wait any longer for him to change. We have tried counseling and such over and over but the fighting is getting worse and there is no joy in our home. But I own a multi million dollar business and am a very full time working mom. I have someone that stays at home with the youngest now. But I don't know how I can possibly handle my schedule and their schedules and be ok. I don't want a live in if I can avoid it. I love my babies so much and want to enjoy these years and free of the misery of my marriage but can I do it. Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated.

I hate to say it but in the long run, it would be better to end the marriage. If you and your husband aren't happy, your kids are going to pick up on that and then they won't be happy. You said you run your own business, have you considered instead of getting a live in, hiring a personal assistant. Set aside a time that you go home to spend time with the kids no matter what. You can be a successful business woman and a loving mom all at the same time. It will take some work but it can happen.
