My abusive partner is vile to me and I can see why his ex committed suicide

DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE put up with the most appalling abuse from my partner for years.

He’s a horrible man and I took beatings so my children didn’t have to. He calls me awful names.

If I’ve fallen asleep when he comes to bed and wants sex, he pulls and spits at me.

He treats women as sex objects and says when a man wants sex, a woman has no right to say no.

He forces me to get him Viagra and says if I refuse to have sex with him my life’s not worth living.

I’m 52 and my partner’s 71. We’ve been together since I was 16.

He controls all aspects of my life but he will never leave.

His previous wife took her own life because of his abuse and fear.

I am desperate but have nobody to talk to.
