You do deserve to be happy. Everyone does. I think if you've thought about it long and hard and REALLY examined yourself and why you feel this way, then you know what's best for you. Of course, you also have to consider your kids. Will he still be part of their lives if you divorce? They've already lost one father.
My OH and I are both divorcees. Mine was because of a long host of issues, but his was pretty simple. Like you, he wasn't happy. His ex-wife isn't a bad person, he just didn't love her anymore. Of course, there were specific things he was unhappy about but that was the gist of it. Their son had just turned two. I know people in his life went bonkers. How could he leave someone he had been with for so long? Just because he wasn't "happy?" But his son didn't deserve that! But he did what he had to do and I admire him for it. I only wish my ex-husband had the guts to leave when he wanted out. Would have saved us both a lot of heartache.
My point is you have to be very, very sure this is what you want. It can't be about just wanting something different or "new." But if you truly don't love this man the way you should, then it's probably kinder to you both for you to leave.
