We've been separated for over 1 year. It's time to take next step.
I was holding out, don't really know why, but I have to now.
We had an oral financial agreement from the moment he moved out, and he honored that, and even helped on some occasions with extras. We never had anything legal, because I thought he was being fair - not generous - fair.
Now that we sold the house, my son turn 18 last month, he felt that he should cut my support quite a bit, oh and this was done without the courtesy of a phone call, or a discussion. Hey I've only been his wife for 23 years - why would he give me that respect?
Made an appoitment with Lawyer for the week after DS's graduation.
He's in for a surprise, because I have been paying for OUR life insurance, OUR Car insurance, including my for my son's -which went up 250.00 a month. I also pay for both kids cell phones (both iphones) - and most kids activities/trips fees. with me making 1/2 of what he makes!
I'll be asking for all of that, plus Alimony.
And he has the nerve to say, he doesn't know how I spend the money that he "gives me" Fuck.this.Guy.
I told him, he should of thought about all of this, when he was looking for the "unknown" - his one and only excuse as to why he had the affair, to this day! These are called CONSEQUENCES buddy!
I am not looking forward to any of it.
Any advice on what to also not to forget to ask for, or what's not worth fighting for, would be greatly appreciated.
I edit - because I hate misspellings or grammar mistakes.
