Divorce support expert
being in a situation where you are being manipulated by the threat of a suicide is not a nice place to be. You have the right to follow your motivation to move on from this relationship but you also feel responsible for your husband's wellbeing and the interest of your children.
Your husband's situation seem to have contributed to the damage of his self esteem and I am concerned that he may be suffering from depression. It may be beneficial to discuss this concern and even though things have changed and need to change if he does threaten you, to take action to protect him from himself. These situations should never be taken lightly and you also need to protect your children and yourself. At first try and reason with him and that he should seek help. Once he is emotionally stronger then you can address the separation issue.
As far as your concerned is for your children, know that it is often not the divorce that hurts the children but the selfishness of the parents.
