What is really best for my son?
      07/18/06 11:20 AM

I am seeking divorce after 19 years of marriage. Our son is 17 and will be a senior in high school. My husband does not want this divorce. But I do. He says he still loves me. He is very manipuliative and controlling. I have been miserable for a lot of years. I filed for the divorce on July 3rd. Papers were served on him July 4th. I told my son before they were served that it was going to happen. I only did this because I was afraid of what might happen. Since then, he is not willing to leave. I put the proceedings on hold for a bit as a favour to my husband so that he could get used to the idea and save up some money for his own place. He now says he wants to stay until our boy graduates in May. He says its because he is the disciplinary and that our son will run all over me and probably land in jail or worse, if he is not there. I feel I am perfectly capable to guide my son. But financially, our lives will be difficult. Maybe I shouldn't have told our son about this whole thing, since techically, he's not out yet. Because now, I believe our son has some major issues. Don't get me wrong, he has never been in any touble. He is a good student and a good worker. (He works part time.) Its just that he cannot stand to be home and feels so pressured by both of us. I don't want him to feel this way, but I understand that he must feel like he is under a microsope when he is at home with us. Its not a pleasant environment.
I don't make much money and so I would have to work two jobs to make a living. Would it be better to stay married and everyone is miserable? or is it better to just get this done and over with. I don't know what to do.
Just wondering if anyone has been in this situation.
