J, this sounds ominously like a relationship with an abuser, which is never a good idea. I would be very, very keen indeed to "lose" someone who abused, hurt and scared me --- NOTHING can justify someone behaving like that towards another person. Such people do NOT reform themselves or improve, but grow worse, more violent and more unpleasant. Phone an agency like POWA that supports and helps abused women, and work out the safest way to leave such a person.
