Verbally and emotionally abusive relationship with 2 children. I still love him, but want to experience freedom from the fear of waiting for the other shoe to drop/walking on eggshells lifestyle. I don't want to destroy him, but I can't live this way. It has gotten so bad to the point where I have considered suicide as a way out of this relationship.

If he is verbally and emotionally abusive it is time to walk away from him. If you can't do it for yourself do it for your kids. Don't your kids deserve a better life than to hear you and witness the abuse? Think of your kids here before it's too late and they think it's normal to either be in a relationship like this or to treat others like this. The longer you stick around the more of an impact it will have on your kids. I would just tell him flat out that you're leaving once you have established a back up plan. Do you have money saved? Do you work yourself?2
