No kind of abuse is justified and acceptable. A marriage is not about abusing somebody, it´s about truly loving another person

Psychological abuse is often not seen for what it is until the relationship is over.  Manipulation is often at the top of this list.  If you are being abused, or if someone you trust questions the way your spouse is treating you, it is important to see a counselor.

No. The point of a marriage is to support each other. If you are being torn down instead of built up, you need to deal with this issue.

No. The woman should seek to get help, and ask her husband to go to counseling with her. If he refuses, more drastic measures might need to be taken.

No one should tolerate psychological abuse in any relationship.  Psychological abuse is executed through verbal abuse, manipulation, and control of another person through deceptive practices, inciting fear, instilling fear, threats, and making jokes or put-downs.  The victim may feel they are not worthy of keeping a job, maintaining a family, or pleasing their partner.  They may feel they “don’t do anything right,” the abuse is their fault, and they may feel too weak to leave.  This type of control can often lead to other kinds of abuse.  Many victims of the abuse feel that if only they loved more, were a better wife or mother, or worked just a little harder, that the abuse will stop. They may also think that the abuse is their fault, and may make excuses for their partner’s behavior.  These are classic symptoms of an abused partner; and these patterns of thinking are inaccurate.  If your partner is abusive, there is nothing you will be able to do to please him; he will always find fault as a method to control you.
