My boyfriend and I have been together for 1 year now. When we first met, things were amazing. 3 months into the relationship, reality hit. My boyfriend informs me of this mystery person who is stalking him, my ex tries to blackmail me, I lost my job. Also should mention I am a single mom. My boyfriend asks me and my son to move in with him.
This lead to us fighting more - about everything. It's become abusive in many forms. After a week of getting along, he tells me he feels like he is settling.
I fear that that he feels obligated to me since he moved me and my son in, and regrets that decision but is loyal and feels badly and is too afraid to break up out of fear of hurting my son.
What do do I do with this info? He tells me if can change then he wouldn't feel this way, but me as I am now, isn't good enough.

Your choices are to take advantage of his loyalty, stay together, and prepare for a life of misery, or to discuss an amicable way of parting ways that minimizes the stress on you and your child.
This situation illustrates why you should not let a significant other be involved in your child's life until you know that you want to make things permanent with the SO. The attachments of your child and SO complicate every decision that you make about your relationship and this could have been avoided. Learn a lesson from this mistake, become self-supporting, and avoid repeating this scenario.1

Not sure what to say. Why don't you move out and see what happens there? I could never stay with someone who told me that.0
