    Hi there!

    I’m in the early stages of a separation which came as a huge shock (husbands feelings have changed, his mental health not good) I really didn’t see it coming as we’ve had a good 10 year relationship and 4 years married.

    It’s taken me a few days to get over it but I accept how he feels and we’ve started to make plans for him to move out ect. Luckily it’s pretty amicable so far!

    My question is, how do I tell the kids? The older two (13 and 11) have worked it out, had their moments of upset and anger but have vowed to help me and look after me. But it’s the younger two…..we are sleeping sepetate and he’s hardly here so they’re aware of something but don’t know the extent.

    My husband (ex 😞) is all for sitting them down, telling them outright and thinks that’ll be it. I can’t bare to do that and do worried for their emotions.

    I have the arduous task of finances to sort too, lucky for me I own nearly everything as he’s a student but has been paying the bills with his student loan so I’m going to find life hard financially with my part time job.

    Is there light at the end of the tunnel guys???
