Each day a new struggle, as I tried to come to terms with the possibility of a new family life. What new challenges would it bring? What new things would I need to learn?
A blended family… Two of my children and two of his. They seemed to play well together in the beginning, things were amazingly smooth. Too easy in fact, that he toyed with the idea of moving me into his home to look after them all and then the selling of my house. There were so many variables, but it was nice to just enjoy the moment for what it was… A moment..
The fur began to fly when my ex husband did in fact speak to a solicitor about dividing our assets. He wanted his name off the title of our house – hence me take on the full mortgage. Or sell.
Well, he got the best deal from that. I agreed to only taking half the money from the sale of the house and all the furniture.
That was not the only hurdle we had to overcome.
