Thank you everyone. Your words have all been amazing. I'm long past the crying stage...I'm firmly into self protection and protection of my animals and my assets mode now.
The day after the made his announcement I changed my life insurance and put my son's name, changed my will, changed my retirement forms. I also changed my will and named my oldest son the administrator.
I changed my electronic deposit for my paycheck. I always had my credit cards in my name alone. The truck has always been in my name and my car has always been in my name. I now have the joint account we used to have where I keep minimal money to pay things that are automatically paid through that account such as automatic shipment for the animals' food, MSN, my gym, etc. Only $300 per pay period goes into that. I'll deal with transferring things over in due time. The bulk of my paycheck goes split into my own checking and savings and a completely separate account where $175 goes every paycheck and I never even touch. That's the pet fund, there's close to $5K in there for pet emergencies. I had more in there but Cassie's and Dru's final vet bills ate a pretty large amount.
I've always run the household. The only thing he pays is the car insurance. I can take over that fairly easily.

I'm so sorry you're going through this but it sounds like you're doing ok. I'm so glad you're keeping the dogs. I'm sure karma will come around.
