    I don't know what to advise on what you could do but I know that I would not be accepting of him working 8 hours away and just coming home "when he can" when you both are starting your family. So whatever the answer is, it's got to be something together.

    Support from family is one thing but having your partner there every night is another. (Or at least FIFO)
    I am close to my mum and we have lots of family support (built out house next to the in laws- on a farm so they are still 3km away ) but I would trade all of that to be with my husband.
    I think a big talk is needed. Be honest and tell him either:
    A) he moves back to his old job and you go with him or
    B) you find another solution for his work
    As it sounds as if he is unhappy/stressed in current position and as people have mentioned above a stressed out daddy is just as hard as a stressed out mummy.

    I don't think you'd relationship is bad, you just have hit a bump in the road that we all do. That's why a good relationship/marriage is made up of honesty, communication and compromise.
    I'm sure you will work it out

    Ps - once bubs comes along he probably won't want to stay away
