if you marry less than 1 yr you can null the marriage..
means like cancel the marriage so your status will be back to single n not divorce.
but of cos being a single mum, benefits is diff from a divorced mum.
single mum no baby bonus n CL is only 2 days.
but you have to check the babybonus website to see the eligibility for baby bonus.. not sure must be married how long then can claim.
if i were you, i would have left him a long time ago.
im a single mum btw. i left my ex when my child was only 5 mths old.
like your hubby, he doesnt work n everyday shake leg lorr, say find job but try to keep it off as long as he can.
since i was preg til now i pay everything myself, see doc, he only acc me sometimes..
i even had to give him money to spend cos he no money.
but he doesnt throw vulgar at me, cos he knows my pattern, i'll fight back.
only regret i have is to put his name on my child's bc (we r not married btw), now giving me problems cos i m gg to marry my current bf n we have to go thru some other process to "adopt" my child( will further explain if you need me to )
just think of what you really want, but i would say, this man is useless to keep by your side.
