Your relationship is wound up so tight that it is going to be very difficult to unravel it.

Your breakups seem to have become a bad habit between you and we all know how hard it is to break bad habits.

He knows all the tricks to keep you in his grasp and understandably you don't want to live that way anymore.

This situation is so difficult that my advice is for you to see a marriage counselor alone and then if necessary bring him also. It is especially important to have a professional at hand since he is suicidal.

If you can avoid telling him do so since he will probably talk you out of it.

My best wishes are with you!
