Re: I have no marketable skills, how could I ever leave?
If you are a mom- then one marketable skill is childcare . You could nanny, or work in a child care center or other related situation. Here in the USA, you don't really need major credentials to do those things- usually pass a background check and have some experience (depends who you work for). Also, if you cook for your kids, maybe you could look into working in a restaurant doing some cooking or other food service. Finally, if you know how to keep your house clean, how about getting into cleaning services? Just some suggestions. I know how you feel. While I was a SAHM, I was so dependent on my husband. A few times I felt I needed to possibly separate but did not because of not having my own resources. I decided while I was staying home to go back to school and get my teaching degree. It was hard, to say the least, but so worth it. Now I have my own income, and much more confidence.Good luck!
