at an impasse

Ive been really unhappy these past few months with my husband, if not completely miserable. Im a sahm and my husband has been military for 6 years now. He constantly holds his job over my head saying im ungrateful for what he has sacificed and provided our family while i have done nothing when i am at home. But i take care of all household duties like laundry keeping the house clean vacuuming dishes groceries paying my half the bills even though i dont work. He disrespects and belittles me, calls me names and makes me feel inadequate as a mother and a wife. Weve tried counseling and have tried making things better between us but nothing seems to take effect. I have thought of leaving him many times but could never do it. I love him to death but im afraid if i leave he'll find away to tak the kids away from me or find some loophole that even though we're separated ill still be miserable. I dont know what to do anymore..

Oh man im sorry to hear. I hate when the men think that sahm r just chilling at home, its actually a very high demanding job! Maybe by can take a little bit of a long trip to go see ur family. Its rough when ur respected in ur own home, I can relate to that, im told i don't do enough that im ungrateful disrespectful stupid lazy ya know all the basics, were actaully going to couple therapy this week. How long were u guys in it? Sometimes it can take a good long while n sometimes u need a different person. N doesn't that suck when u r just miserable at home with ur life even tho instill love ur hubby n now's the time when u just want to be happy with ur little girl. N its kinda sad tho how many women put up with so much for fear of custody but usually if they give it to the mom especially if the dad is always traveling (like with a military job). If u did seprate he might try to still make u miserable for a while n it may work for a while but nobody can keep u down forever.
