My wife an I are separating. She is the primary breadwinner and I the carer. She works long hours, and wants me to leave the home so that she can at least see the kids am and pm. When I rejected this she threatened to quit her job and allow foreclosure on the home (in her name). I have agreed because a) I sympathize with her and b) because she does have the economic muscle and does own the home, and I earn very little. She has since moved her mother in as caregiver pending my departure. A viable parent is being replaced by a grandparent. This is surely not healthy for the kids. The interests of the children are key here? Can she be forced to continue paying for the house and supporting the kids if I opt not to leave, and remain in full time care of the kids? Can she legally sink the ship?
