Find a place for yourself and your child. If possible don't let him know what you are doing and when it's time to move just go.
You will need to get a lawyer involved though as he has parental rights and you don't want to look like you are taking the child away.
I strongly advise getting legal advice.

Thank you so much. I just feel better just finally saying something. We rent but like I said I pay everything. The lease is up. I have not signed another lease. He has been dependent on me for so long. I know that I am partly respondsible because I allowed it to go on for so many years but I am getting older now and I want morer out of life. I feel like I am chasing the wind. I am praying I can get out of this situation peacefully.

You don't deserve to live like that at all. I think he should be the one to leave but I know it's usually easier to leave ourselves.
Is the house in your name or both? Are you renting or do you have a mortgage?
You need to be careful if the house is in both your names as you would be liable for still paying the rent/mortgage if you leave.
Maybe get your self a lawyer to advise the best way to go.

I have been living with this person for almost 18 years. He is controlling. He takes my car, doesn't work. I am the bread winner in this family. We have a 12 year old that is at home. I feel so sad all the time no one to talk to. I keep this secret within in all the time. I have no family her they are over 1000 miles away. I have a decent job and want to relocate back, but do not want to give up my job. The only reason things don't get physical is because I always say yes to what he ask me. I never tell him he can't use the car because it will turn into a big mess and he will threaten to flat the tires or bust the windows. I am my sole bread winner. I will be broke if I left without a job. I am so torn on what to do . I am getting so tired of living like this. Do I just walk away and say forget it or do I continue in this messy life that I am living. Any one have any suggestions.
