He would be an asshole but women leave men all the time over health issues and injury so it is the same deal there. A friend of mine was divorced after a car accident that meant he couldn't have intercourse anymore. The concept of 'till death do us part' no longer exists in most marriages.
It's actually really common for women to leave their man if he becomes disabled. This behavior is far less prevalent in the reverse scenario.
Regardless, anyone who leaves their spouse due to a sudden disability is probably a terrible person, man or woman. It can be extremely difficult being in a relationship with a disabled partner so I wouldn't judge too harshly. However when 4 children are involved it becomes a far more severe offense to leave.

Not much you can do. You married a dick who was only in it for the sex. But at least he left you with the dog.
