I have to be honest.....you're staying even after he threatened to hit you reminded me of a time when I did the same thing with my exH. We were arguing over $1.43. I stood my ground then, even dared him to do it by getting in his face. I told him I might be on the ground after he does it, but when I get up his A** was going to jail. He never did hit me but if he did, he sure could have hurt me! I was thinking with my pride then, not with my head. What I'm telling you is this: I totally understand your wanting to stand your ground against him, but it's not always the safest thing to do. I agree with the others advising you to LEAVE as fast as your little legs will carry you. He sounds dangerous!
And whatever you do, DO NOT add him to your checking account. Once the account is joint, you're both equally responsible for what happens to it; the bank's not going to care who wrote the check/used their debit card. Make him get his own account.
Protect yourself in this situation by removing yourself from it!!!!
