Because She "loves" Him.

My mum and this man have been together since I was like 5. I'm the oldest of 3 kids. Since forever he's been treating me like ****. I don't understand why. When I was younger my younger 2 sibling used to get treated like royalty. While everyone was watching T.V, I was doing the dishes. My mum used to work all the time, so she never saw anything bad about him. But by the time I was 10, she left him. We moved out of state and life was good. But one day I came home from school and there he was. I felt like I was punched in the stomach with a bag of nickels. Then she left him when I was 15. Now, I'm 16 and she's back with him. I want to try to be nice to him for my mother's sake, because she 'loves' him. He constantly calls my brother, who is 14 and slightly mentally challenged, all kinds of names, and he works him like some kind of slave. He calls me names too. He's lazy, make my mother cry all the time, and is constantly tearing our family apart. He makes all three of us do stupid things around the house for no apparent reason. I used to be really confident in myself. I got good grades, had lots of friends and had an awesome relationship with my mother. Now I can't wait for college. But I don't know what to do because, If I leave, my siblings are gonna get mistreated, If I stay, I won't have a good life in the long run. I cry about this situation everyday, and I NEVER cry. I don't know what to do, and I don't have a lot of time to think about this.
