Should I Stay or Should I Go? It may be the title of a great song, but it's a tough question you may be forced to answer in a divorce. Ultimately, the answer depends on your goals, resources, and children's needs. Separating an emotional attachment to a home is difficult, but you have to approach the question the same way you would if it were strictly a business decision. That may sound cold and calculated after you've lived in a home a long time, created many memories, and raised children there. But unfortunately, in a divorce situation, it isn't practical to continue sharing a home with your soon-to-be ex-spouse.
