Forget the open marriage idea. I have known some people who have tried that and it never worked long term. Also, what kind of moral upbringing do you want for your children?
If you don't want to loose your house, don't move out of it. That doesn't mean that you'll end up with it, or she will. You never know what will happen if a judge decides how to divide your "stuff". He could make you sell it and split the money.
A mediator is a great idea. They are unbiased and confidential. A mediator can help you and your wife agree on terms that otherwise a judge would decide for you.
Bottem line, what is most important is your family, your children. All the rest is just "stuff". Although some "stuff" is hard to let go of, sometimes letting go of it opens you up to a new beginning.
