I am so very sorry that you are in this spot. And that was so not nice what he said to you. He did that to hurt you. And I'm sure it did!
Hang in there. If he is telling people, it sounds like he may have given up already, but you never know. Some people do end up working it out.
And you've got a lot of good company with being a "statistic". I too thought I'd never be divorced. He promised me he'd never walk away, but he did: just like his dad did to him when he was the same age as my boys. Makes you wonder about genetics.
It's too bad that all the people who are smart enough to run the country are busy teaching school.
