I need advice/suggestions. I've been married for 17 years. Things just keep getting worse. We've had a roller coaster marriage, and I'm sooo tired (emotionally) of being hurt & my kids being hurt emotionally. Separation/Divorce has been on my mind for a very long time. There are so many issues. He says he'll be better, and he is for a couple of months, then goes back to the same ways/attitude. 17 years is a lot to throw away, but the way things have been the past few years, there's not much to be considered or concerned about throwing away. I feel like I'm merely existing and going through the motions of daily life. I feel totally empty inside because the intimacy is dead in our relationship. The said thing is, I don't even think I want it back. Not to mention, I don't think it could be brought back. We are more like friends than husband/wife. I feel very selfish when i think about breaking up our family. Sometimes, I think me and my boys would be better off without him around all the time, but I know they also love their dad. I think the 3 of us have the love/hate thing going on with him. It's so hard. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
