I am the wife of an active duty military member (Air Force). We are at a point in our marriage that we do not wish to coexist in the same home. However, we are not ready to divorce either. We married and live in the state of Texas. I have read that this state does not recognize legal separations. If this is so, then is there another way we could legally separate in this state?
I do have 2 teenagers from a previous marriage and my military spouse carries them as his dependents. Both my children have ADHD and one of them also suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism. We are not even aware if the Air Force will allow him a separate (BHA) Basic Housing Allowance, or if my kids will have health insurance. He could easily go ask JAG but he refuses to go. I am not mobile.We do not have any kids together and we have been married 6 years. He wants to travel with the Air Force, and due to my kids having mental health issues he is coded and unable to travel. This is why he wants to separate legally, so he can see if time apart will help us work on us the marriage.
