I think this would depend on what your personal values are and what you value more in your life. It sounds like that regardless you will be making a sacrifice, you just have to figure out which path you would be more comfortable taking. There really is no right or wrong answer to your question unfortunately. Maybe considering doing a bit of personal reflection, or maybe even consult with family/friends and see if they can help you decide what to do. Again, no right or wrong, just try and figure out what you would be more comfortable doing, and good luck!

So you know where he stands on the bond of Love, how about you? Do you want a relationship void of love? Is this just a relationship of convenience that benefit you both? Ask yourself what you really want. It's never easy with children, but it is when you know what you want out of life. Children can be a great motivation and give you strength when you least expect it. Does he care about you and the children by providing and making a want for nothing environment? Does he make & spend quality time with you? If he does do this then stay and continue to talk it out with him. If he actually couldn't really care less...MOVE on. Not only for yourself but for your children. The energy that you are wasting on him can be better used on you and your children. It is true that once you clean out your life it opens space for new things and people.
