My issue is that my husband of 6 years and I are seperating. We've been rocky for 3 years now but keep trying. He finally got his dream job and is moving over 2000 miles away in august. we have decided i will not go with him but we will stay together in our house until he leaves.
my issue right now is my car. When I was 22 he insisted I need a car far beyond my means ($36,000 car). I tried to get rid of it in 2007 but no one wanted to trade cus it was a lease. i bought out the lease. now that I will be on my own I need to downsize my bills and the car is #1 to go (so sad, i adore my car).. but the dealers i see want me to take like a 6000$ hit on it, which i simply cant do. Today I went to a Ford dealer and tested a 2006 Mustang
. My car is 2005 so this isnt super but this car has 50,000 miles less than mine, warranty for another 3 years.. one owner.. and i'll only have to roll abour $1000 into the new loan. I have a past history of loving Mustangs but now my husband is insisting i am being childish, immature, irresponsible and will now put up a fight for me to not get to stay at our house when he leaves.. Yes, it is a car I've fancied in the past.. and I know its not ideal in the snow (I live in NY) but no one wants to give me what I owe and this really seems like a win-win situation. he insists if I go thru with it tomorrow that he will fight me on the house and I throw any chance to get back together in the future out of the window..
ADDITIONAL INFO BUT NOT REQUIRED>>The house is in his name and I know its "half mine" since we are married but it has no equity and I cant afford it alone.. It has 3 units and we rent two and essentially live for free in the 3rd which would help me greatly for like a year while I consolidate bills etc.. I've been with him since i was 20 years and 1 month old so being alone is kinda scary and I dont wanna rush into anything big.. And I sure cant afford a lawyer to fight it out..
