    I kind of put myself in this stupid mess.

    i asked my husband if he thought we had a good relationship as husband and wife. Prior to this we’ve had the odd bicker. But onver the last year there was no holding hands, kissing, sex. Just two people who live in the same house with 2 young children. I’d had enough wanted to know Naomi asked that silly question not expecting him today he wanted to split up.

    that was it, my wedding ring was straight off. We both agree that we’ve just grown apart.

    Out children are 3 and 6. How do we tell them, when’s the best time?

    He has found a house share that he is going to but will be back at “our house” early and come over in the evening untill the kids know so that things seem “normal”.


    how do I know what I can claim? Where do I go? I tried cab but they were as much use as a chocolate tea pot.

    We have a mortgage together too. My parents or gran are kindly going to pay it off if my husband signs The deeds over to me and signs something to say he wants nothing from me. He has verbally agreed to this so we will see a solivotor and the mortgage provider to sort this.

    the break up is very amicable at the moment, I’d like it to stay that way too

    There is no easy way to tell your children things like that.  Your 6 yr old may have more of a reaction than your 3 yr old. You just need to come up with a time and place between you and your ex. You are the 2 that know your children best, and what they can and can’t understand. Just keep it as simple as possible, and reassure them that you love them both very much.

    As for finances, if you go onto the GOV.uk website, you will find a benefit calculator. Put in all your details, and it will give you an idea of what help you can and cant receive.

    I hope this helps a little.  If I can help any more, just message.
