So the main reason my wife and I stay together is for our kids, especially our middle child on the spectrum. Both my younger boys (3 and5) take 2 parents but my 5 yo on the spectrum wouldn't be able to get to his therapy if we lived apart because of work, insurance and scheduling. But I am very unhappy and am thinking about options. Does anyone have any experience with being divorced or separated and still living together? I understand it wouldn't be easy but I'm wondering if it would be easier than the way we are now. If it weren't for our kids I would have left long ago. And please no advice on how to fix our marriage, we've probably been there and done that. Things have been bad for years and I'm just exhausted.
I was in that situation and the daily disrespect I was shown made me leave. We managed, but it was a tough 15 years. Looking back I probably wouldn't have changed a thing. Autistic daughter turned out to be a joy but only because of a lot of work on both my x-wife's and my part.
