Whyever not ? Many people do so. Its not necessarily easy, but it has to be POSSIBLE.
Now, the "permanent" quarrelling isn't inevitable. Eventually, when you stop breastfeeding, maybe you can alternate nights as to who gets woken up ? And stop competing - start congratulating him frequently about how much he does, how much more than you - and it'll spoil the fun of competing, for him ! If a babysitter is only occasionally practical, try to ensure it's for a really refreshing occasion, rather than anything noisy and more tiring.
Its not you, not either of you, but the situation. If you found it awfully easy, there'd really be something wrong with the pair of you.
And it won't scar the kids for life,, and need not ruin the marriage.
Try to map out how things will improve, as the 2 yo gets more and more able to sleep through and less demanding, and even the youngest is on that path.
Lets see what other parents on the forum have to say - this is surely not a rare situation !
