He's weak if he's come on this forum twice to bitch and moan about being abused by his borderline girlfriend. He's asked us for advice and not taken any action. If his action was to stay because he loves her, then his weakness is coming here to bitch and moan. Not only that but to come on here and tell just about every freaking person how awesome it is to be strong, that being strong is good and being weak is bad and then turning out to be pretty emotionally weak. By the way, I have PLENTY to bitch and moan about regarding my passive-aggressive boyfriend but I stay with him because I choose to and love him and hence no need to tell the world I'm abused. By the way, in case this is useful information, one way I deal with it is to take separate vacations.
