The Reluctant Divorcee

Brought to you by SA Law

I’ve never considered writing a blog before; it’s the kind of thing other people do. I’m more of a fact-based person but things are so all over the place at the moment that writing down my thoughts and feelings suddenly feels like the right thing to do. It helps me to organise my thoughts a bit, and who knows, someone else might read this who’s going through the same thing. So here it is: My blog, by Rebecca Green.

The way that you are hurting me – I just don’t understand

Another complication. James’s solicitor has responded to Marilyn’s questions about the Nationwide account and the pension. It appears that the pension has been transferred into his new corporate pension, which makes sense, but the bank account was an “oversight”. This has set alarm bells ringing as what else is missing? He’s also now saying that his  inheritance shouldn’t be included although we intended it for university for the children. . Marilyn’s going back to them about the queries we have with his financial disclosure.

I really didn’t expect things to be this difficult. We’ve always been so open about money and James has been easy-going about holidays and things so why does it feel that he’s being so mean now? I don’t understand. It’s not as if I’ve asked for anything unreasonable, just enough to cover the children’s expenses. It makes me so sad that he’s not taking his responsibilities seriously. I cried on Dad last night, which helped a little, but Dad got so angry on our behalf. I love him for it but he started bringing up other things that James has done and said over the years, and I just can’t cope with dealing with someone else’s anger at the moment. I’ve barely got enough energy to deal with my own emotions.
