How to find courage to divorce after 7 years of marriage with a 1 year old child if I am a stay at home mom?
To find the courage to divorce, because you both are not right for each other, when you have a child, is very hard.
You have a child, who needs you. So take responsibility in getting your life in order. You have to become emotionally and financially independent. Start taking those steps immediately.
Even if you don't want to go back to programming, see if you can use those connections and skill sets to start working from home. Many moms and dads do that.
It is very important to have a plan, and take one step at a time. Start saving to go back to business school, maybe find ways to apply. This is a huge and important step, but what you do here, and how you become strong is setting the example for your child.
While it may sound like your soon-to-be ex husband will financially help, you have to develop your self-esteem and stand on your own.
If something happens to him or he meets another women after your divorce, then there are no gaurantees. Are you planning on taking custody of your kid? If so, the court will look at you to see how you will support your child. If they don't, it might be quite easy for your husband to claim custody.
Make sure you cross your t's and dot your i's as you are not only responsible for your own life, you are now responsible for a child's.
Take the steps to become independent.
