She has no means to move. She is a teacher and attempting to get back to working asap.
Do not assume that! You are making assumptions based on what you know, or what you think you know. Remember that she's already surprised you with the affair, I thought you said you never would have imagined she could have done something like that, right? I thought the same when I was in your situation, especially since X' parents are here in N. Il, and since she had grown up here and gone to school here. In the last decade we moved back here twice after my job had me move to TX -- because she wanted to get back closer to her parents. Yet when she started pursuing "the plan" [her plan to achieve her dream, her happiness], all of that went out the window and she moved three hours away from her beloved parents. Get used to the idea you need to plan for the unexpected now, all bets are off.
As for her attempting to get back to work ASAP, i hope you are right -- that sure beats the alternative when it comes o alimony and child support.
BTW, sorta coincidental, my X used to be a teacher too. Her parents paid for her college education, entirely, some $20k [a lot of money at the time, and still a lot of money today]. It took her five years to get her degree, then another two years to complete her required student teaching, then she finally started teaching and she worked as a teacher for 10 years. Had a hard time with it at times but was very proud of it, of what she was doing, of her profession. Then after our last move back from TX she stopped working completely, let her teaching certificate lapse, and after seven years of doing nothing she started going to school [with my alimony money, of course] to become an ....... [ready for this?] X-ray technician. Was supposed to finish that this year but it sounds like she is behind, and she will only be able to finish sometime next year [apparently, hopefully].
Do you get my drift now? What, if anything, of the above, could I have expected based on past behavior on her part? Her infidelity? Her decision to divorce? Her decision to move 135 miles from her family, or her decision to completely dump teaching and become something totally, completely unrelated?
Think about it and draw your own conclusions.
