Is it still abuse if they don't hit you but scream at you so loud you lose your hearing for a few minutes. Or say such bad things to you when you walk into a store and half to keep your head down so people won't see the tears i have nowhere to go and he knows this i am in college and can't go nowhere until graduation. Any advice on what to do. His 23 yr old lives with us and it makes it worse because he is a troublemaker what can i do i can't give up my schooling because that is my ticket out we have only been married for 1 yr and a half. Do i get any of his assetts only being married for a short time. He worships the ground his adopted kid lives on and does no wrong. i am hurting sad aand feel lost.

  • Get out now. It may not be physical abuse, but it is abuse just the same. You can't stay in an environment like this. Find someone/somewhere to stay somehow, but this will only continue to get worse if you remain in the place you are in now. Get a lawyer and file for divorce asap and move on. Good luck!

  • psychological abuse is still abuse- get out before it becomes physical. any good lawyer can tell you what your rights are. contact social services to find out about any abused women's services in your area; they can often find you a place to stay while things get sorted out.

  • it's verbal and emotional abuse. No you can't get any of his assets he had before the marriage. You can get half of what you two obtained while married. I'd be finding a student roommate so I could finish college. It's probably too late to see if you can be a Dorm Advisor and get a room that way.
