If you don't end it sometime, you can be sure he won't. Why would he? He's got a place to stay and someone to help with his child.
I say get out....the sooner the better. Staying in will only cost you more in the long run......more stress, more unhappiness, and possibly more $$. Stop allowing yourself to be lied to and manipulated by him.
ITA with the above. I'd say give him four weeks--that's plenty of time to find another place and move. Be firm and stand your ground.
Hugs to you.
Happiness is being kneaded.
