    Hi anonymous. Can I just say, although this may be hard to hear. You are a mother with children who love you. Really think about why you can't leave him. Your children can sense all of your emotions and it's not good. I would love to have children but my partner now of five years has told me, he doesn't like kids. There is always someone worse off. Do what makes you happy xx
