Money Troubles In Separation

Q: My wife and I are discussing a possible separation. I don't want it, but she says she needs some space. She is looking for apartments/condos and wants me to pay for it. I don't mind helping but can't afford to pay another rent. How do I navigate this?

Dr. Anna: How have you handled money so far in the relationship? Are you both working? Separation can be an emotionally painful time for both people. It's tempting to give in just to try to make her happy. Perhaps there is a way for you and her to get some space but with less financial impact. In any case, you need to think about yourself and your own needs as well. It may not be a bad idea to get some legal advice about your financial obligations in this situation. Most legal offices will offer a free consult. Most important is to take care of yourself in this situation, both emotionally and financially.
