Temper wise and yelling at me when he don't get his way.Even though me and his stepdad broke up after being together for 12 in a half years,I am hoping this changes when his dad leaves monday morning.My main concern is that i can't get him to change and he treats his girlfriends like he treats me when he don't get his way.

I would get him to counseling, he's been exposed to this behavior for so long and since you tolerated it For that long he now thinks it's acceptable. Also I would probably warn his girlfriends family that he is verbally and possibly physically abusive so they can keep there daughter safe.

I agree that he should get counseling because he probably will get worse when his Dad leaves. He has been allowed to get his way by acting this way and has seen his step dad treat you this way, so that is how he thinks males should treat females. It would be good if you went to counseling together so that you can develop a healthy relationship together.
