It's called emotional abuse. Turn the tables on him. Go out and get yourself a job and earn your own money. Put it all in a bank account that is only in your name. Make some investments that will earn you interest and some extra money. Get some nice clothes and get a makeover (new hairstyle, new makeup, etc.) Go out to eat by yourself or with some friends. Go on vacations without him. Let him fend for himself, and in effect, "leave him in the dust". Ignore his screaming (because believe me, he will try to up the ante). Move into another bedroom, and act as if he doesn't exist. Then, if he's still around after six months or so, look him in the eye and say, "Now--do you get the fact that I'm an intelligent human being who doesn't need you?" Then, turn around and walk off. Don't let him off the hook.
