My husband is a recovering alcoholic and when he is not drinking he is really sweet, but when he drinks, he gets violent. My mum says thats no excuse and its still domestic violence and I should go. I don't know what to do , is she right
Yes she is. There's are no two answers to this. Just tell him either leave the bottle or to pack his bags and leave the house. Domestic abuse is abasolutely intolerable. No way you should be taking such abuse lightly as it will not go away but will only get worse.
