Something apparently got lost in translation
Nothing about this is okay.She is seeing a new dude and I’m cool with that. We are still legally married.
This was going to be my suggestion. Swap houses on a temporary basis, making sure you are doing it for the kids.You may need to wait until things get worse. And if they do, suggest to her that you swap houses. If she insists on keeping up with the work, etc. and things are truly bad, maybe she'll at least think of the kids. And you got bug in at the house with kids and she and new guy can hang in your apartment. Maybe sounds crazy and would be a no go, but if she'll put kids first when it comes down to it, maybe that would work. Unless it turns out that this thing does burn itself out with proper isolation.
The four of you or the 5 of you.Any suggestions on how to proceed would be most welcome. Thanks for reading.
Looks like you are all gonna die then....and the boyfriend will be eating all your prepsLast year I separated from my wife. I moved into an apartment and let her keep the house for the time being. We also have 2 small boys which we share custody of. For the most part we get along ok. She is seeing a new dude and I’m cool with that. We are still legally married.
Here is the problem. She was never really on board with prepping and such. She has a horrible case of normalcy bias even though I’ve been sending her articles about the virus and just how bad it is.
She is going to keep on working until she gets sick and by that point the boys are gonna be sick and I’ll probably have it also. She is a cop and will be expected to go to work no matter what. I’m on the cusp of retirement so it not a big deal for me to take a couple months off to bug in with the kids.
I’ve tried talking to her about it, but I don’t think she understands that by the time it’s obviously overwhelming our area, it’s too late.
Ideally I’d like the 4 of us to stay at the house and bug in there. I’m in a smallish apartment so all my preps and my gun safe is still there. Any suggestions on how to proceed would be most welcome. Thanks for reading.
Well, now that you said it.Looks like you are all gonna die then....and the boyfriend will be eating all your preps
Well you know me....lol. I don’t sugarcoat anything. LolWell, now that you said it.
Yeah....that was my reaction as well. I just didn't want to be that harsh to the poor guy....buy since you went there first....
Yep. Pretty much. An enemy or TWO inside your camp that you can't get rid of is a no win scenario. If it was a real SHTF and not just Corona where you have a 98% chance of surviving if you do nothing....well, you probably know what you would have to do for the sake of your kids.
