You are getting a lot of advice about leaving your SO. I think it might be hard for you to think along these lines, but honestly project out another 15 years. Imagine living with this unhappy and hostile child all that time. It is obvious that your presence does not make her happy, and is probably stressing your SO, as well.

My advice is to move out, and find another place to sleep.

I suppose you might be able to salvage some sort of relationship with this woman, but you have to count the cost to yourself.

And if you decide to stay, say for a couple of years, and you invest of yourself in the child, and she is still acting out and is difficult, leaving would be much harder on her then, than it would be now.

I think your SO needs to find help in managing her child, who sounds as if she if out of control now. I feel sorry for her, I really do. But you have ask yourself if your being in the family is helping or hindering. I think you know the answer.
