m I misremembering, or did we earlier today get a message from a young women considering entering a relationship with a man 17 years older and with 2 children ? Maybe you should read each other's messages.
I don't think the age difference is as important as the prychologically abusive behaviour you describe, which is wrong at any age. IF he behaves the way yopu describe --- why are you in any sort of relationship with such a nasty man, let alone having a child with him ? Marriage counselling is obviously needed, but I doubt he would agree. If you're able to support yourself, wouldn't you and the baby be better off without him ?
Discuss the situation with an organization like POWA, as this is abusive, and he certainly shouldn't be allowed to stop you leaving if you wanted to do so.
