    Hi all,

    My husband and I separated 7 months ago after I found out he was having an affair. He moved out but when the other woman finished with him he moved back into the family home. He has turned the lounge into his bedroom with clothes all of the place and it’s a mess.

    He refuses to move out and just says that he owns half the house so he’s not leaving.

    I’m really struggling. He gets very angry quickly and life is so hard at home at the moment.

    The divorce date to get the decree nisi is 7th October but we have no idea what to do about the marital property once everything go a through.

    Sorry to rant, thanks for reading! Amy words of advice or encouragement would be most appreciated!!
