OK, a bit about me, I am 57 years old and up until earlier this year cared for my mum, she sadly passed away in May. I said to my husband I should go out and get a job instead of dwelling on things at home, he said no need, he earns enough, we don't need the money. Let's whizz through to early September when he announces he has been seeing another woman since the beginning of August! I feel like it's 37 years of marriage down the drain, he left home (and indeed, I didn't want him to stay). Now I have got to start my life all over again. I am buying a house about 4 hours from where I am now (and therefore 4 hours from here where my son, wife and children live) and up sticks taking my 19 year old daughter with me, she (and of course I) will have to get a new job. I am using money my mum left me and dragging all my pensions out to afford a roof over my head (am currently in private rented property which of course my husband is paying for at the mo as I have no income). My husband is getting all uppity saying HE can't afford a house, I am trying to be adult about all this but sometimes, just sometimes, my inner child escapes and causes a horrible row - please tell me things will get better, at the moment I just can't see it. I will have to leave all my friends and everything I have known around here and I see a big scary world looming towards me
