Would you consider this Spousal Abuse ?

Hi,

I'm here to get some opinions on spousal abuse;
a friend of mine, her husband does not hit her, but when they get into an argument, and he tell her to shut up, and not to say another word, and when she does he grabs her by the throat, or grabs her very hard by the arm, or pushes her by the face away from him,
but its only once every 6 months or so,
its not a regular every day or every week "beating" as such,

my question for the women, and men if you want to input too, is do you consider this Spousal Abuse ?

I would love to get your opinions.

Thanks,

Joanne B

  • yes thats abuse you should never lay your hands on your spouse for any reason what so ever. Thinks like that just get worse they continue to esculate and maybe not fast but over time he will get worse. Iv been in a abusive relationship that started just like that one and over a course of a couple years it turned into him hitting me.
    They need to seek help right away befor it gets out of hand.

  • IMO, yes it is abuse. He is physically abusing her{he grabs her by the throat, or grabs her very hard by the arm, or pushes her by the face away from him,}. Besides beating her, whats left.?

  • she would leave but the only place she has got to go is her mom's, and thats in England,
    and she has her daughter to think about, and all of her and her daughters things,
    clothes, etc.
    Its a big PIA to get everything shipped, and she doesnt have any money,
    her mom would help with the Airfare, but thats all she can do.

  • She can ship some of her things over to her mother. Leave what is not that important.
