Very lonely and empty in need of advise. He said trucking over our marriage, what should I do?

I have been with my husband for 11 years we have been married for almost 8 years. When I first met him he was/is an over the road truck driver.
At first it was okay he promised me he would come off the road in ten years he broke that promise.
Then he said he would do city work for a while so we could be together (to give me what I needed) then said no he was not going to do that. I pay for everything and do not get hardly a cent from him for the bills. I paid for our house on my own. I may see him for 12 hours in a one month period and he seems to think that that is okay.
He also thinks its okay that he does not have to help support me or our house (as in the bills or house repairs). He says its a lifestyle and that he would chose his job over our marriage. I just do not know what to do I am at the point of just turning the other way and not looking back.
I used to love him but now I don't know how I feel. I guess I just need someone to talk to to answer questions I have. Oh I forgot to say that he is also a Canadian Citizen and i'm an American which makes this life all the harder.
So please if someone can help me get through this I would greatly appreciate it.
