Re: Please help. Divorce, debts, homelessness and mental health.
I don't know in too depth about the situation but I come from a broken family and experienced my mother going through similar situations. For me, marriage is something I'd like to only experience once. But in your situation you really have to use your brain over your heart. You have to think about whats best for you in the long run versus what you want now. As a filipino-american, I've had to deal with extended families all the time, and to be honest, they are just a total headache. You can't make everyone happy and when you're part of a "close" family you're always going to be stuck TRYING to make others happy. He obviously isn't going to make the debt go away, and you cant rely on him to do that. If anything he will add to it--hate to say that but it's true. Perhaps try a legal separation before divorce since those are two different things.
