I am very sorry you're going through this---but I have a few questions.
You said she is stressed out about bills. Are you working? Do you provide for the children? Do you help with the bills? Do you give her money? I find it very hard to believe that she would break up with you for just "chatting" with other women. Are you having extreme "chats" with these women?

Well, it's hard for a couple to work on anything if both partners are not willing to put in the effort. Sure it was your fault but the fact is you realize it and are making a strong effort to correct the problem. Now on the other hand she needs to really see that you are giving 100% and should be a little more understanding to your actions to remedy the situation. I say do what you have to, if you feel so strongly for someone anything is worth the effort but at the same time it might not feel too great to know the other person is not really appreciate what you are doing.
