Our expert says:
I can hear, loud and clear, why you have profound doubts about this relationship. What I can't understand is why you have put up with him for so long. Why on earth would you want to stay in any form of relationship to someone who at best treats you with no respect ? And then he became frankly violent and abusive. One way NOT to respond to feeling disappointed by having allowed him to use you for so long, would be to allow it to continue a moment longer. Call POWA, and get good advice on whether to press charges against him. Its lucky you don't live with him --- consider getting a restraining order to forbid him from contacting or approaching you again.
