In the meantime, and I am not overreacting here (I have seen it happen), one day he will (not might, WILL) injure you. He will be sooo sorry then, but you will still be the one in the hospital bed or worse. Please get protection or get away, Sera.
I am fully agreed with Sera. You should go away from him and then only he will realize importance of you.
