Thank you for sharing this with us and YES, you are right - it is a major turn off!!! Some people feel like that about cigarette smoke, garlick breath, smell of alcohol or a foul / swaety odour!
I however read between the lines that this is not the only thing that makes you angry /sad / unhappy? It is also important to know that there may be something else wrong with him and that is why he stopped brushing teeth or sudden onset of poor hygiene (I assume then that this is a recent thing). A few psychological /mental conditions can cause it and then there is also organic/physical problems that can cause behaviour like this. It is thus important that both of you get hekp. If there is nothing wrong with him then, then you can work on the option of going your own way. Consult your doctor or social worker / psychologist or phone the SASHA helpline (0860 100 262).
