I have a friend whose husband has always been mean, verbally and emotionally abusive.Constantly putting her down, screaming in her face, and giving her the silent treatment, for things she tried hard not to do. He expects everything in his house to be perfect at all times and she had 5 kids. Finally after 20 years of it, she is standing up to him. She is giving him a cold shoulder, and she has even told him he is mean and abusive.She is now seeing that he was abusive, and she isn't taking it as much now. Now the husband is telling her, she is just as abusive by telling him that and treating him that way. She gets all upset telling me she is an abuser too, because now she is mean her to husband and is no better. Her husband said by her telling him he is mean, is no different than all these years of him being mean to her. I don't know what to say..Any ideas? Is her reaction to him a form of abuse too? She said she never wants to abuse her husband and be like him.Answer Question
