Our expert says:
I get the impression that relationship problems may be more common in engagements that are iether very young, or very prolonged. In the situation you describe, it sounds as though the relationship meant very different things to you and him, and still do. Neither of you have been faithful, especially him, as it sounds as though toying with multiple women is a habit for him. And apparently neither of you can express yourselves about emotional matters, at all well.
Woudln't some sessions or couples / relationship counselling be wise ? Not to glue everything together again and ensure the relationship continues, but to explore what has been and is happening, so you can both make a sensible and informed decision about where to go from here, if anywhere. If h is not prepared to do this, for the benefit of all of you, move to plan B which would be to plan a safe way for you and the kids to leave and become independent.
