    Going Through Divorce or Separation
    My husband and I have already decided to get a divorce. We have not officially filed yet though, mainly due to time issues(He works 60+ hours a week and I watch our 2 kids, work, and in college). Over the years our cars, house, medical bills, and kids have used any extra money we ever had...
