I'm only a psychiatrist, and I cannot understand why any intelligent woman would want to stay with, and sleep with, a wildly and irresponsibly promiscuous man, who repeatedly gave her STD - it suggest a frighteningly low self-esteem to imagine that you deserved to be with someone with so little respect for you. And that any other woman would be daft enough to want to compete with you for the attentions of such a selfish slug, amazes me.
I thought slavery has been abolished, legally - but apparently self-chosen slavery continues.
And what on earth are your parents thinking, to insist that you cannot and should not leave such a man ?
How do you convince yourself that he cannot live without you ? he has done so in the past, and, whenever he cheated, did so again. If he chooses to harm himself even more than his destructive lifet-style already does, that's ghis choice, and not your responsibility.
WHY do you feel you HAVE to love this determinedly unloveable man, who is not worthy of love ?
Nothing you say suggests that he loves you at all, rather than using you for his own convenience.
Go for counselling to liberate yourself from such a toxic relationship and to discover independence and freedom.
