I would talk to him about exactly how unhappy you are, but I know with my own marriage, I never understood what my DH was talking about when he said he was unhappy because I was happy. I didn't realize that his opinion of our marriage mattered because he came from a divorced home and my parents were together, so obviously I knew better than he did! That can be tough to overcome, for me it was like an epiphany.
Things can be tough when your kids are small to find time for each other it does get better. I agree with Eirelass. I heard nothing to break up a marriage over, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. My Dh works a lot too, and I am just thankful he's working, especially now with so many out of work and makes good money to take care of us all.
