"just for the job"

This statement bothers me. You wouldn't be doing it "just for the job". You would be doing it for the wellbeing of your husband. If he is not happy, and he is having to commute and spend so much time out of his children's lives, he could burn out and he is certainly not performing at optimum level in his job. With his statement that he doesn't want to live like this much longer, this is the direction he is potentially headed.

In addition to this, your children are missing a big part of their lives - their father. This "just a job" is what gives you the ability to BE a stay-at-home mother. I absolutely see your husband's point of view. He wants to spend more time with his family, and that is really, really important, both for him AND for your children. It's ok for you, you get to spend every single day with them. Put yourself in his shoes and see the pain he has to live every single day.
