He's probably digging his heels in, because he felt life was going one way, and discovered reality was something different. Since you have children together, and you're the breadwinner, he might feel especially threatened by the possibility of 'losing everything'.

He needs to be reminded of two things:
1-that you feel how you feel, and that can't be changed, regardless of how your discussions as a couple go, so he needs to accept that
2-That it's not a reflection of how you feel about him. Try to remind him how you *do* feel about him, what you love about him, and how, no matter what else might happen, that will not change.

Hopefully, in time, he will come to see that very little has to change if he's able to come to terms with it.
