Hello, I am in 40ish age group. Suddenly, my husband and I


Hello, I am in 40ish age group. Suddenly, my husband and I are not doing well. Suddenly, I need to manage finance myself. I've never done it before. I know it sounds so so silly. I felt stupid as well. I just felt overwhelmed with career Changs, kids Changs, husband changes. I don't know how. I know I have to learn it. it's good for me. Can I take thing one at a time? Can not everything drop on me at the sometime. I am scared. or maybe I am making excused. I felt like I have to start everything over from finance. is it doable? For those who have been through it, can you share your advice and encouragement or your wisdom? I really don't want to do it. But I know the longer I stayed, the longer I don't feel happy. I know I have to do it. it's hard, discouraged, overwhelmed.. thanks...

jjjulie If you have children together and get divorced, he should have to pay you child support, maybe even alimony if they are under age. I assume he works? Get a lawyer. If you can't afford one, there are family legal services who will help you. I know it's overwhelming. Try to focus on one thing at a time. There are community places that will help you develop a skill to get you into the work force. Also, do you belong to a church? Churches are wonderful places if you are someone in need. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Just the fact that you have come here is a big plus and shows that you want to improve upon your situation. Good luck to you.

Hi there... take a breath. You don't have to figure it all out at once. And talk to people close to you, about what you should do, especially with your marriage. Have you and your husband been to a counselor, have you? Allow yourself to process it all one thing at a time. That way it will seem less overwhelming. And, you now what? You will be okay, whatever happened. Believe that. HUGS!
