I separated from my first husband several times before we divorced. I'm sure glad it worked out that way too because I sure appreciate my current dh of 16 years all the more.

Well we have been separated for 2 months now. I am renting a granny suite from my mom. I have had to go on social assistance to be able to support DD and me. I have my good days and the days where all I want to do is cry. I must say though that I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. I am not so stressed out about him coming home and everything else that was going on. I even saved some money to take an online course to put towards medical transcription certificate, so I can eventually get off the system and support DD and I. DD is doing better as well her behavior has changed and her tantrums are less which is nice. I feel like I am getting control over my life. I don't have to ask for money to go by groceries; large sums of money aren't disappearing from my bank account. I don't have to ask to go out, not that I really went anywhere any ways.
We are still going to go to couple therapy down the road but right now I need to figure things out for myself.
Thanks for all your support guys. It is still a struggle we have been together since I was 16, and I have my days where I am scared about being a single mother but I really feel this is the best thing for us right now.

I didn't go back. I knew he would not change.

Thank you for sharing and thank you for this post. It was very timely for me.
We decided to separate Mon. He is supposed to be out by Sat. I already have plans for his room (my guest room/office/exercise room.
This is our second time. First time was in Jan of 2004. I went back basically cause I was scared. This time I decided HE was going, not me. Our house (we were renting in 2004) was obtained thru my military service in a senior park where he is not "old enough" yet to live in. I am disabled (not receiving any money) on vo-rehab now.
He has not changed, I have only gotten worse. I am pleased right now. We will see but I am not betting on a reconcile and this thread has just reinforced that for me.EmilyD
