This may be a stupid question. Husband and I have been having significant problems for 7 of our 8 years of marriage, an idea, running up credit card bills on 1-900 numbers ($700.00) one month, okay after confronted, 6 months later, stopped. Has a drinking problem, was able to control himself 1st year of marriage, after that, went to he!!. When he gets drunk he destroys things/breaks things. Okay got that under control the destroying thing, still drinks, had an affair(lasted 3 months), started talking to a woman who works with him, spent hours and hours on the cell phone with her, when confronted, stopped, has subscribed to singles websites, started another phone relationship with a woman he met on line, had a thing about calling escorts, not sure if he actually did anything.
Okay, last week another incident occured with his drinking, he decided he needs to be fixed. I can't get past the anger, although I did not want to file for divorce right now until I get better financially.
Question is, if he files for divorce, could we both stay in the house? I know if one of us threatens or destorys the other's property, could be grounds to have them removed. Since it's Friday afternoon, I haven't been able to talk to an attorney. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Oh, he also makes 3x more money than me, but does pay child support to his ex-wife. Spousal support? Maybe?
