My husband and I are getting divorced.
This isn't a sudden decision; it's something that is years in the making and only has been made after consultation with people that are older and wiser and professionals of various sorts.
I know to some people we seemed like the "perfect couple" but I wanted to remind everyone that the internet only shows the part of reality that we decided to show, and is, in no way, a complete picture.
Why we're getting divorced is not something I will be sharing, but I will say that I wish the best for him and he for me, we just decided that our marriage isn't meant to last, but we're glad that we married each other so we could have our four wonderful children.
That said, we're hoping to do this as amicably as possible, both for our sake, and for the kids.
We're in the process, but things are taking longer than I thought they would.
We're still living together; he's not moving out until we have our agreement in place. And yes, that means I am staying in the house here with the kids, fortunately.
This is a new chapter of my life, for sure, and it is one that is making me glad that I have been so frugal up until now, because, more than anything, I'll need to be living a frugal life as a single mom of four.
As for how I'm doing, fortunately I have an amazing support system, so I'm doing wonderfully.
Any frugal tips you want to share for a soon to be single mom?
