My husband and I have been married for 12 years. We reside in ID. Have two kids. My husband is an alcoholic and seems to find more time for his friends than us. However, when it is good it is good. We still love each other. We just cant seem to live together. For obvious reasons, this is more true for me. I receive money from the Va every month. If I divorce, I lose money. If we are legally separated, I don't. Since I will be taking both kids out of state, I need every dime. He says, and so far, he will not fight me on anything. Right now, he really doesn't know what he wants. He says he doesn't want us to leave, but I dont know.
Sorry for the rambling. Basically I want to know the benefits of both, legal separation and divorce.
