I have 3 Kids and Want to Divorce My Husband: Is it a Wise Decision?

Dear Love Doctor,

I’ve been married for 17 years, my first child just sat for WASSCE.  I have three children, and my only daughter is to sit for her Common Entrance Examination soon to enable join the next JSS1 students of this upcoming academic session.

However, I’ve decided to leave the monster I’m married to and that too with my kids. I am really concerned since I am yet to settle down fine; and I  haven’t gotten an apartment or a shop for business.

I am considering the amount of money I have on me and I’m not sure it can do all that.

Again, I own a small portion of land in Lekki, and I intend to move to that environment so that I’ll be close by and develop it when the money comes.

Moving with my kids now won’t be easy since I am not yet settled, I don’t know how to go about that.

What should I do?

Should I leave the boys and go with my girl, she is 10 years old or go with all three and manage with them because I am certain that their father won’t agree to bring a dime for their upkeep once I leave with them. On the other hand, if I leave the boys for him, he’ll be forced to take responsibility instead of spending on his girlfriends.

It’ll be very difficult for me but at the same time I don’t want my children to grow up without me in their lives, especially my girl. She’s my only daughter and I want her to always feel that mother and daughter relationship is present in her life as she goes through teenage hood.

They are the reason I have endured the inhuman treatment I received from my husband all these years. However,  I want to be happy and feel loved  because I’ve never been loved.

Please, what do you advice I do?
