As Salaam Alaikum!



What you have done was a big mistake and thank the Almighty Allah

the realization came soon.



First of all if both of you are living in separate bedrooms under 1 single roof, sit together to come to an understanding

that both of you wants to remain man and wife or not.



If both of you wants to get divorced, ensure you get enough

alimony from him and as boys are minor they will remain with

you till certain age & your husband has to provide everything

to them.



Meantime, the best way to teach the boys Islam is for your to

practice it sincerely bu being steadfast in salat, fast and

zakat to lead a righteous life. Also read Koran in the language

you best understand and keep explaining to the children. This

way Inshallah they will come to know about Islam.



May the Almighty Allah have mercy on to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path of Islam as per the Koran for rest of our life.
