I want a divorce and my husband refuses to move out of the house, he states he does not want to leave the children. If I get a room nearby and still pick up my children every day from school and stay with them until my husband gets home from work, as well as come "home" on the weekends to be with them, is this abandonment? Am I forced to stay here because he refuses to cooperate? He says he doesn't want a divorce . . . but I do. I don't want to put myself in a bad situation, I do want custody of my children in the end, but I don't want to be forced to live with him, either. Just an FYI, we are still friends, it's not an ugly scene, we are not one of those couples that are trying to hurt one another, emotionally or any other way. He just doesn't want what I want.
