I ended up in a refuge 300 miles away from him, and didn't tell him my address for 5 years. It kind of feels permanent if you do it that way. You can always get a new job/new children's school's/friends/etc and you will be free to live without the Fear. It takes a bit of willpower to say 'no, enough is enough', it took me 18 years to get to that point, I kept going back/taking him back. The point is, he won't change, and things will go back to how they were.
Very good luck with whatever you decide.

It took you a lot of willpower to get out. Have you got a non-molestation order to keep him away?

You are getting out of your car when the tiger is about. An easy pray!
Get that non-molestation order. Get support from womansaid or the freedom team if you don't feel strong enough yourself. Do you have children?

Oh please keep moving forward in your life and away from him!
