My boyfriend slapped me after a night out drunk.

i’m so sorry you’re going through this. deep down you probably know that leaving is the best thing for you and your future child. there are a LOT of single mothers who do it by themselves with the support or friends and family. do you have a strong support system outside of your boyfriend? you don’t want your child growing up witnessing a dysfunctional and abusive relationship. even though it is just a slap right now, violence always escalates. he’s a physical and verbal abuser. it doesn’t seem like he has any redeemable qualities. if he isn’t very loyal and treats you like shit and you haven’t left yet, you need to look within and see why you are allowing yourself to be subjected to this. no matter what- you deserve better and you do not deserve this. i really hope you recognize that this is very scary and dangerous behavior and you and your future child deserve better. good luck ❤️
