I MEAN I KNO IT TAKES TIME TO CHANGE
This is not true, but may be something you want to believe since it gives you something to hope for....something I can't imagine anyone wanting, i.e. someone who beats and otherwise abuses you.
Sometimes it takes awhile to make a change, other times changes occur quickly.
IMO changes are more apt to take time because the one doing the changing is resistant.
Anyway, why would he want to change? He's got everything just the way he wants it.
He gets to beat you, make you do sexual things you don't want to do, yells at you, and knows you will do nothing to stop it.
Once in a while, when you get particularly hurt, or start to show enough signs of standing up for your right not to be abused, he knows all he has to do is pretend to care. He knows you equate his loving you with "comforting you" saying the words "It won't happen again" and other superfical reassurances.
Then, you back off and he behaves for a little while, if at all. All in all, he has to put in very little effort to keep things the way he wants them.
You ask, "Isn't there a chance....?"
The way things are now, absolutley not, no, not a chance, no way, any other way you want to say it.
Why would he want to change? So you can be happy? The first time his fist hit you, or he forced you to submit to him sexually, or degraded you with his words, he gave the message loud and clear he cares nothing about your happiness.
Take your child and leave.
