I am writing this letter because I have been married for 13 years. I have been a full-time employee for the last 8 years, but for the last 2 years, my wife has been unemployed. We are in our mid-30s and she is nearly 50 years old. She has been unemployed for over 2 years now; we don’t know what to do about it. She says that she wants me to divorce her so that she can take away all of our assets and leave me without any financial support.
She says that if I leave her with nothing, then she will be fine and we can work things out later on down the road when she is employed again (which hopefully will be soon). But if I divorce her now and take away everything, then she will have no resources whatsoever and won’t be able to support herself or our children.
I love my wife very much, but sometimes it feels like she doesn’t care about anything else besides herself at all times. This is why I think it would be best if we separated right now before things get any worse between us.
How can I get out of this?
Unemployed Spouse – Is My Divorce Affected?
My ex-wife has been unemployed for two years, and she wants to take our children away from me. She wants my car and house. She does not want to pay child support. She says that she can’t afford it. She says that I should have worked to support her instead of enjoying a high-paying job that she couldn’t even get a job at because she was an unemployed single mom with no skills.

What are the Rights of a man against an Unemployed Wife in a Divorce?
I am a father of three, and my ex-wife was unemployed when we divorced. She has since found employment, but she wanted to take away everything that belonged to me, including our house and all its contents.
This is not right! How can I support my kids if I have nothing? My ex-wife doesn’t want her share, because she does not like the house or any of the things it contains. Instead, she wants to sell everything and use the money for herself.
I cannot afford to be separated from my children, so I will have to work hard in order to provide for them. If you are unemployed, do not make your children suffer because of your financial difficulties, but you should retain your rights as your children’s father.
Tips on Divorcing an Unemployed Husband or Wife
A friend of mine recently got divorced, and his ex-wife wanted him to pay her alimony for the rest of her life. She also wanted to take away everything he owned, including his house and car. After years of working hard and supporting his family, my friend was left with nothing except a house that he barely paid for.
In this case, it’s not just about money—it’s about how much you can live without when you don’t have a steady paycheck or any savings. It’s also about how much you can lose if your personal property is taken away from you.
Divorce is hard on kids too: they have to go through the emotional roller coaster that comes with having their parents split up—especially if they’re younger than 18 years old.
