I am still married right now but on the verge of divorce. My husband has traveled with his job for the last 5 years and I have raised my kids basically by myself. He just recently stopped traveling so much, I think in hopes that we could work something out, but he is unfaithful to me and I really can't take his crap anymore.

We have two kids, both under the age of 5, and I have always been a stay-at-home Mom for them. I do not have a job and no way for income unless I can move from TX to NM where my parents live and can help me with my kids.

He has already eluded to the fact that he will get joint custody because he is the "breadwinner" and I am just the lazy person that sits around the house (his words).

If we have to go through joint custody, will I be able to move? My husband is not abusive to the kids and I think he really does love them, but we are just not meant to be, so I don't want to exclude him from their lives, especially because they adore their daddy, but I have to make a break that I can survive, and I can't do that without my families help.

I cry even as I type this because I am just at a loss. I am naive enough to have never imagined that my life would end up like this. I would like to think that I would have never had kids if I would have known my husband would do this, but they are the most precious things on this earth and I can't imagine my life without them.

I don't even really know how to proceed. Any thoughts at this point would be helpful. I just don't know what to do.
