A dysfunctional relationship is worse than no relationship IMO.
I agree with this!
Quoting blondie.mom:You can still co-parent together, and get along with each other. If you leave him, that does not take a father away from your child, it simply means you're no longer together.
What kind of lie did you catch him in? Is this something you can work on together?
I know what you're going through. I stayed with my lying cheating husband for 2 yaers after I found everything out because I didn't want our girls to go without a father. To be honest though, if you're unhappy your child will know. You don't want her thinking that the relationship you're in is the kind of relationship that she needs when she's older. You need to leave, and since he's a good father he can have joint custody, but you keep physical custody. Meaning, she'll live with you but get visitations with him. I can't tell you exactly what to do, but that's the best advice I can give. Good luck. I hope you figure out what's best for you and your daughter.
As a child of divorce, I can tell you that I was much happier after my parents split up. I was 10 when my dad filed for divorce. It was nice not to have my parents fighting and yelling all the time.

No I tried to this is the third time I caught him. Dating websites setting girls etc. It's beyond repair
Doesn't sound like a "proper" father to me.
Is he your daughter's bio-dad?
