thanks so much for being brave enough to bare your heart ... pictures do sometimes look perfect hey! but hide things sometimes...Houses and jobs do not bring happiness but Yes love does exist ... but it doesnt just happen. Love is like a muscle you have to work it to keep it strong.... you cannot keep pretendng to be happy but you can work at making it happy... ..how many will be hurt if you leave? plenty... the kids will cope but be scarred and you will not solve all your problems.. you will have new ones.... But you sound like you are in a crisis and ONLY you know the depth of the problem and can decide... things can be so hard ... I have so much to say but maybe I will email you privately... thanks again for posting such heartfelt page.... Bless your heart
P.S romance novels??? ... they'll make you expect that in real life... thats NOT LIFE - so unreal
