Need Marital help - or at least some encouragement

I need some help. My wife and I have been having marital problems - constant fighting - for the past few years. Perhaps we are growing apart or perhaps the kids (ages 6 and 8) are consuming us. Either way, she has a tendency to really verbally chastize me in a way that I feel degrading. I would call it a form a verbal abuse. I am not a boy scout - am an imprefect man with faults and I find (much to my regret) responding in an equal manner in terms of verbally striking back at her. I think - hell let me be honest - my problem with her is her lack of a sex drive for the past 6 years. We talk and talk about this but there is no resolution other then I have to deal with it because she doesn't understand why this is happening to her. I am not sure I even love her anymore and, honestly, I am staying in the marriage because of my kids - they are my life and I adore them so much - I can't even tell you the joy they bring to me.

Lately she has been having outbursts against me in a way that I can't even respond. This is making me more and more angry and when I tell her that I wish we could be civil she always says it is my fault. I feel that in these instances I need to vent my anger and I begin to shout. What is of concern to me right now is that I don't want to lash out physically at her. I have never hit a women and don't intend to but that is the way I am feeling.

Perhaps I am holding on to the American dream of marriage, white-picket fence, vacations -  but I feel like a complete failure. I even tell my wife this and she walks away.

Any advice is appreciated!
