Your situation is really beyond this “barracks” advice of any form. You should also talk to a lawyer about your situation even if you decide to stay in the marriage. Part of the problem is that if he goes off the deep end you could get stuck with half his debt if takes out loans even if you don’t know about them. In addition if you decide to end the marriage you need to have to make sure that you do it with your lawyers advice or you could end up losing some of the financial things that you should be getting. For example (unless you are being abused) if you pack up and leave he could claim that he wasn’t cheating and that you had abandoned him and don’t merit any support. You should also ask your lawyer to help make sure that your medical condition is properly diagnosed and documented Call a lawyer on Monday to have an initial meeting to see where you stand. You should plan on talking with several lawyers to interview them to see which one feels right to you.Financial adviseYou really are not in a position to make long term plans right now. Keeping the money in a money market fund for a year after your divorce is fine. You should be getting around 5%.Moving overseasYou would also be leaving your friends and support network and moving to a different culture where you might not evern speak the language. This is big stuff; don’t make any decision like this until your divorce has been final for at least six months. Getting a visa that allows you to legally work will be difficult in many countries.
