How can I get my husband to move out of the marital home? We have 1 daughter aged 15 years. Suggested we separate fir a while and one of us move out to see what it was we both wanted .... He said firmly he wouldn''t move out.

Is there anything that I can do? :(

Did you suggest the separation? Has he Bern behaving unreasonably? If you are unhappy and want things to change and he has not been doing anything terrible I can''t really see why he should leave.

If you own the home together there''s nothing you can do at this stage to make him go...I speak from experience,my ex is having an affair and I am the main carer to our 6 kids but he still thinks I should go!

Free spirit,
Your husband would be very foolish indeed if he were to move out, particularly if he thinks you intend to pursue a divorce. Assuming you have paid for your home together (or that he has paid for it) I cannot see any reason why he should move out at the moment.
You don''t say whether your husband has done anything wrong, or whether you just want rid of him. If you just want to be divorced then unreasonable behaviour seems to be widely accepted by courts and is difficult to challenge, whether your husband is being unreasonable in the eyes of most people or not. Settlements seem to be quite favourable towards females, so if you want to leave the marriage then that might be the way if achieving the aim whilst getting a good pay out. Others here may be able to advise you on the details.

Yes I have suggested a separation on more than one occasion. I firmly suspect that I have been in an emotionally abusive relationship fir a long time but did not know that.

So would the best thing to do then is to accept that I will have to co habit whilst applying for a divorce? I don''t think he would agree to unreasonable behaviour as he thinks it''s all in my head and my fault. Would a court be able to help me?

Thank you

Yes, you will likely have to share your home unless you move out. He would be ill-advised to contest a divorce in grounds of unreasonable behaviour.

If you definitely want to leave the marriage I would cut to the chase and start procedings, waiting for him to cone round to the idea is likely to just waste time
