Better to love people as a whole, than to bits. And it's not true to say you "Can't" leave him. Maybe yoiu don't want to, or you're scared of the unknown of life after him, or just don't like making up your mind about complex things like this. Buit you CAN leave him. Call a group like POWA for advice on leaving an abusive partner. You not only CAN live without him, but there can be very little doubt that you can live a whole lot happier and better without him.
