Hopefully a mutually repsectful arrangement can be figured out. While I don't buy into people staying together for external comfort and safety, I also don't underdtand why people allow themselves to be used to supply these. Independance is one of my most valued characteristics as well as bravery. I was terrified when I left my wife....I had nothing but an old truck, a motorbike and a torque wrench. But I survived and found great strenght in standing on my own two feet.
Hopefully you will be able to work things out or both of you will find the strenght to be fully happy regardless of the initial pain.
