Ask @ireneybob:

I did! He said he isn’t happy, but he is staying for his kids. He said he wishes he would have met me before he had kids with her. He has to have love for her though and I guess in order to not be completely miserable he tries to love her. I just wonder how much he truly loves me.

If you really want him to show you how much he loves you then you can ask him to divorce her. Test his commitment.

+1 answer in: “He says he loves me, but we can never be because he had kids with a woman he is with, but isn’t happy with. He said long before we ever had a romantic encounter that he wasn’t happy? Do I trust that he truly loves me or is he using me? Is he really staying for his kids or because he loves her?”
