In our three years together, Mr Trifectagirl struggled to find work. Mostly because what he did in the UK requires an extra qualification here that he didn't have (but had started studing towards).
So I worked to financially supported our family while he stayed home and looked after J. As much as he loved being with J, the fact that he wasn't providing for his family in the traditional sense both frustrated and depressed him.
After various issues with his superannuation fund, including them loosing the file, I finally recieved the money he'd had put away for his retirement a couple of weeks ago.
On October 26, 2012 Mr Trifectagirl made the ultimate provision for his family - he's given us a secure roof over our head.
I am now mortgage free, which is a very bitter-sweet place to be. I was teary for a while once the reality hit and generally pretty flat for the day. I don't like why I could pay it out, but am so very grateful that he left enough so that I could.
