Recently, one month, agreed a separation with my wife. We have two children in common 6, 8. We are still cohabiting and staying calm, making plans about how it’s going to work and putting the kids first. The trouble is financing a change, we share a mortgage too. I’m not sure but the partner wants to stay cohabitating until the place is sold and we move to seperate places in the same area. Is this a good idea because the moods are evolving, still calm? Help.
If you can stay calm and co-habit then obviously it will save you both a lot of money. It will make it easier to sell the house too if you co-operate with each other. Hopefully you have a spare room so will have a little space to yourself.
I think most people would struggle.I know I would find it quite hard. Good luck.
Although mr and my wife rent we are still living together even tho I’m in the sofa, my only advice is focus on your next step and just remember it will get easier, me and wife I feel have probably become better friends in a weird way even tho at first it was very hard but I said she can stay here until she finds a place as at the end of the day she’s the mother of my child and her fate effects my little one so I’m being a gent and trying to be as fair as possible, hopefully you can sell the house sooner then later, but for now just remember it’s only a short term thing and hopefully things will change before the feelings get hostile
