He is an abuser, and if promoscuous, risking your life through AIDS. ANd if he refuses to acknowledge that counselling is needed or to seek help, there's really little hope for this situation to improve. And as an alcoholic, he;'s an expert at denbying the reality of his problems. You are surely better off without him. See someone, at least a GO, preferably a local psychiatrist, for a proper assessment and a discussion of treatment options. Sounds like you are already depressed again, and need to resume proper treatment for this. And in counselling you can explore your options --- there must be a way for you to get a divorce, if that seems wise, and for a court to order him to pay appropriate maintenance for you and the children. And realize that the fact that he is with anyone else is not your fault nor any reflection on you --- its entirely his fault and about him, not you.

My husband just left me after only 3 months of marriage. I thought about killing myself, but I realized that it' s not worth it! Happiness will come again in the future, and I' m not going to give up my future " could be"  happiness! Hold on, things will get better! Maybe God wants your attention. I think God wanted my attention. God is so powerful and able to do anything possible and impossible! Trust in Him and walk with Him and concentrate on Him! Good luck!
