Hi, I’m new on here and wonder if anyone has ever had to deal with this.
I separated from my husband in Nov last year because of his behaviour. The problem is that we both work for the same company where he is general manager and I also work, he is not dealing with the separation particularly well and has now said that he finds it upsetting seeing me at work. The issue is that what we I do is quite specialised and I would not be able to get another job doing this without moving away, which I am not willing to do, although he does also want us to sell the house he says it is also too upsetting thinking of me living in the family home, but we have 5 children and for most of our 18 years of marriage I was a stay at home mum so my salary is only 25% of what he earns, so if I leave my job I would not be able to afford to purchase another home. We are part of a much larger company that is based elsewhere in the country but I would rather not get hr involved but he is msging me all the time asking me to hand in my notice, has anyone else been in this situation or similar?
No it is not a huge office only 20 of us work there the only people more senior are the directors, who are based in England, we are in Scotland, I have quite a bit of contact with him but I am always entirely professional, we have never argued there or brought any of our personal business into work, the only reason anyone knew we had separated was because he sent an email round all the staff in the company.
Thank you Anonymous, I am obviously trying to keep everything as amicable as possible because of the children but it is very difficult when I feel constantly pressured into leaving, I really enjoy what I do and if at all possible would prefer to continue.
