My wife and I are separating, and all signs point to

my wife and I are separating, and all signs point to divorce. I can't stand to be in the same house with her anymore, because she has an alcohol problem and a cheating problem. We had decided that I would move out temporarily because it makes a lot more sense logistically and financially because she can be here to get our kids on the school buses and be here sooner when they get home. The long term plan is for me to keep the house and she moves out permanently, but we can't afford that move yet. My question is; if I leave the house, even if it's agreed that it's temporary, will I lose some kind of rights later on? A number of people have said that could be considered abandonment and I would somehow be giving up my rights.
