He needs to man up and stand up against her. I think he's worried that if he doesn't do what they say then they will love him less. But I'm finding it hard to deal with as I find weak men off putting. They have been separated for nearly two years.
I'm not sure what to do. Stick with him as he's a lovely guy or cut mt losses and end it as I'm not sure where this is going. We don't live together, his ex and kids live in his old house( which he's still paying the mortgage on. He lives with his dad, what's going to happen if we want to live together? Please help :)

I think he needs to man up a. It. When he was with her she probably was like that to him too. He probably spent too much time as moms assistant, not dad.
It might be a little bit of a hit to his ego if you tell him that, but he probably needs to hear it. He doesn't owe the ex anything. I understand the housing thing though, he wants the best for his kids and they should grow up in that house.
But he needs to man up a bit. Maybe the ex should start paying the mortgage or at least part of it ( does she even work?)
You would encourage him to spend time with his daughters away from their mother. Make plans with them himself. Get to know them apart from their mom
