I have been with my husband since the summer of 2003. In that time we have broken up and gotten back together several times due to drama or other people's interference. In 2007 we had our daughter, and later that year we got married. He didn't have to marry me, but he said he wanted to cause he loved me. But over the years he has been very emotionally abusive; here lately he has taken to threatening me with bodily harm in addition to his old favorites of attacking my weight, my intellect, my family, etc. He has never been physically abusive, and 90% of the time he is not an abusive asshole, rather a romantic guy. He works hard at his job, loves his little girl, and provides for us. I don't have any family in this area where we just bought a house, but I know there are place to go if I needed to. I am torn between the man I love and the man he becomes sometimes...

If he does it to you, he'll do it to your daughter. Do you really want your daughter growing up hating herself? Thinking she's stupid, fat, ugly and inferior? What's worse is she'll hate your for staying and allowing it. The worst is that if you stay...she will grow up to find a man that emotionally abuses her and her future children also. Stop the cycle of abuse by either getting therapy or getting out.
