Hope73 Posted July 3, 2017 Share Posted July 3, 2017 I'm desperately in need of some helpful advice, as Ive reached rock bottom . I've been in a relationship with a man for ten months. Who is currently going through a divorce. He separated from his wife three years ago, but they still have not been able to reach a compromise on marital assets, so consequently things are still in limbo. I believe that the hold up in divorce proceedings were also related to my partner struggling with severe depression .But he has now moved on from that place, and is trying to rebuild his life. When I first met my partner, I never expected things to be going on for as long as they have regarding his divorce , everything appears to be happening at a snails pace. My partner feels an awful lot of guilt towards his 13 year old son, and has tried to keep things as normal as possible for him ,by continuing to pay all the household bills, £600 maintenance monthly and the mortgage repayments. However he has now seized paying the household bills. Things have become so problematic, that himself and his wife have now gone to mediation, but still don't seem to be able to find a compromise. Whether or not you can understand this at all, but the stress that his divorce is causing has taken a huge Tull on our relationship, especially as I feel he's being walked all over by his wife, who consequently wants to stay in the marital home, which will not enable him to take any kind of percentage of assets until his son finishes full time education. I feel very sorry for him, as I know that this will make starting again very difficult. I'm currently in a small two bedroom rented accommodation, and so it was our plan to hopefully buy something a little bigger eventually. However ,the way things are going this is looking very unlikely. My partner is falling apart at the Seams, and coping with his very demanding job, and a never ending divorce is really taking its Tull. I really do not know what to do, as Ive tried to support him, but I seem to just make things worse. Sadly all we seem to do is argue these days, and it makes me terribly sad , as I just want to get back on track. I've become run down, and feel constantly stressed. I've got to the point of just not knowing which way to turn, therefore I'm desperately seeking some help or advice on resolving things once and for all. Link to comment
