To move or not to move, that is the question...
to clarify, by "move" I mean not just move out, that of course will happen during the separation, but I am thinking of moving to a new city or state.
Very brief situation summary:
My husband(we do not have children) of 3 yrs(together 9 yrs) announced he wants divorce & has filled out the paperwork. He is very certain of this and has already hired a mediator to review the paperwork.
We have no history of drug abuse, infidelity or any kind of abuse. Our issues are related to: my underemployment/unstable work history, my shyness in making new friends,my lack of ambition to pursue further schooling(have bachelor's, want a master's but fear won't be accepted due to low GPA) my ADHD, his perfectionism, our parent/child dynamic, his temper(he gets angry easily), my "unwillingness to compromise" our final straw is when he asked if his friends(a couple) could move in for a few months... I said no b/c we had martial stress & other reasons, he saw this as my unwillingness to want to see him happy.
I live in a small town, nearby a small city, without a lot of work opportunities. I don't have any family in the area to seek solace during this very difficult time in my life. I am considering moving to a new city or state.
I have 2 part-time jobs(about 10 hours per week each) that I enjoy, but have only been with the 1 that more relates to the career I want since April and am concerned if I move my resume will look like ****.
I like the area where I live, but feel really alone going through separation/divorce process by myself...
How many of you moved to a new city or state after a divorce? Were you worried about how it may look on your resume?
Did it help to give you a "fresh start", or add more stress?
