I have been in a long-distance relationship for more than two years. He seemed to be a good man at first, but now I have discovered his true colours. He always accuses me of cheating on him and calls me names. I have to make sure that I don’t miss his calls or I’ll be in trouble. The worst thing is that he is rushing into us trying for a baby and I’m scared to tell him that I’m not ready. He also threatened to harm me if I leave him.

He sounds like a very abusive man. His jealousy can be dangerous and needs to be managed. Having a baby right now seems like the worst decision. You need to persuade him to get professional help. Also seek help if you want to leave him.
