In my opinion there is never a right time to leave. Sometimes you have to leave due to abuse, but in my opinion just because you don't have feelings anymore is not a good excuse to leave. You picked this person to be your children's dad, you stayed with him for 8 years. Your kids have bonded to their dad. Relationships go through many different cycles. Not always are you going to feel like you did the first day you met each other. Just like people that expect to be happy.......life is not always happy. Sometimes you feel sad, angry, hurt, etc. If you never had those feelings then you would never know what happy felt like. Same goes for relationships. That is why it is a commitment. There are highs and lows. When there is a low you figure out how to get through it and bring back up. Sometimes it means "dating" each other again. Just like you would when you first started your relationship.
