Hello and thanks for using!

It sounds like your relationship has reached a point where you're having difficulty solving the problems on your own. Would he be open to couples counseling? Counseling is a safe place to share feelings and work toward your goals as a couple with the guidance of a counselor. It would be worth asking him to attend at least a few counseling sessions together to see if it might help -- if not for you, then for the sake of your two young children. Counseling would enable you to learn how to communicate with one another without arguing (particularly important when your children are present) and how to resolve your conflicts instead of simply walking away from the problem. I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX's open to this idea and wish you luck!
