My best friend has been married for 9 years & has 2 kids. She has been calling me alot the past few months to vent and ask for relationship advice, and in the midst of this I've found things out about their relationship that I had no idea were happening (him cheating on her when she was pregnant with their first child, him being brought up on charges for being a peeping tom getting them kicked out of their apartment and he's thrown remotes at her which struck her in the face). More recently he has been giving her hell since she started school, accusing her of cheating on him at school (she is maintaining a 4.0 GPA), he's controlling & must know where she is all the time, threatening to take the kids, and telling her she has to choose between him and her friends and if she was to leave the kids would have to stay with him until she takes legal action or he would have her arrested for kid napping!
Am I wrong 2 advise her 2 leave

You aren't wrong to give her advice that you feel is the right thing to do. Don't push her though. That will only give her reason to push you away and she needs you right now. Be a shoulder to cry on and mention your feelings on it once but just let her make her decision. She has to be ready and in time, she will. But she will also remember how supportive you were and will need your help. This is a tough situation, I know. But it sounds like you are doing a great job by letting her cry on your shoulder about it. If you suggest leaving and she says she wants to but doesn't know how, do some research for her and help. That is like her giving you the window of opportunity and crying for help. If she acts hesitant when you suggest it, back off from it for a while.
