Yep, I feel that way all the time. Especially when my husband lives in another state (so I'm home alone, 9 months pregnant with 4 kids and no car and exhausted) and has the audacity to say that he isn't sure he wants up to move with him because he just doesn't "feel" the same way about us anymore. What kind of bull is that?
I told him he can take the kids, then, and I'll go live on my own and we'll see how he really feels. We worked it out, though (we have issues, to say the least).
My sil actually did it. She was living with her boyfriend and their 2 kids and just got fed up one day and left. She moved across town (which was just like 10 miles) and hasn't lived with them since. But she still did a lot of the mom stuff, picking them up from school and watching them until her BF got home from work, taking them on the weekends, etc.
