: OK, I have posted before about some major issues me and hubby have. But here is my dilemma at this point. My son is almost 1. I got accepted to nursing school and start in August. Hubby and I DO NOT get along at all (has been this way for months)! A lot of this started as I was pregnant and he just could not calm down, he wanted to go out constantly and hang out all the time! He NEVER grew up! The day after I got accepted to nursing school (as I have been trying to hang in there for the next year)... hubby says he wants to go back to his "home country" for three months to see everyone and "hang out"! He never considered me or our son. What would we do? How would we manage financially etc! I have an offer to stay with family until I complete school... do I take it and just get out of this mess? Like a recent post I don't know what is best for our son. I dont want to destroy him or take him from his father. But at the same time I know my husband will have very little to do with him if we don't live together. Any ideas out there? He refuses counseling... or "working" together on this. In my heart I know what the right choice is but I am scared to death! Thanks in advance!

Your afraid of taking your Son away from his Father,but it sounds like he's never around anyway!!! Shana this sounds like a wonderful oppurtunity, Nursing school!!!! Good for you!!! I think you will provide your son with everything he needs, It will be tough but you can do it and he will learn alot from you. I know its easy for me to say "leave him" but the best advice i ever recieved was "if your bestfriend in the world came to you with this same problem,What would you tell them?" good luck to you, sorry I could'nt help more.Just know, you can do it!!!!
