We lived in the UK for the first 20 months of my sons life where I worked full-time in a Nursery and my partner had some part-time work, she also cared for her disabled mum on a daily basis which did not leave her with much time for Elliot. I would come home in the evening and cook our meal and on the weekend we would jointly clean and tidy our home. Since January, we have lived in Germany where my partner did not work. Again, I am in a full-time post and have done the majority of the shopping and cooking with the cleaning remaining a joint effort on the weekend.
Yes I agree that the time spent in Germany has been very short, but this has not been the intention, as my partner has an annual transport ticket, the day before her disappearance she went with my mother to be placed onto my German bank account, I have secured my son a nursery place at which point she intended to go out to work.
However, I believe that I could provide my son with a brighter and more prosperous future, as I am in a stable job, have a good income that would enable me to provide for him effectively, he will have the opportunity to expand on his social skills and interact with children of his own age, be brought up bilingual and enter one of the top educational systems in the world. In addition, I have a fully furnited flat where all of his toys still reside, he will have a routine and we both would benefit from the help and support of my family (German origin)
On the contrary, my partner has moved back in with her parents who live in a three bedroom property, with her mother being disabled and her two brothers (aged 14 &17), she has no income and I am worried how should could provide for my son under those conditions.
