My bestfriend has a jerk of a husband. He is constantly putting her down and everything is her fault. She has three kids with him plus they are now taking care of his oldest three. She is basically a SAHM and takes care of all 6 kids and the house with no help from him. He constantly takes his older kids side against her and basically ignores the three they have together. She cries to me daily about him and has threatened to leave more than once. Then he will be really nice for a day or so or do some of the housework and they are fine again. I have pretty much run out of sympathy for her and I don't know what to do or say anymore. I want to shake her and yell "get a spine, get your kids and get the hell out"!! She doesn't think she can make it financially without him, though with him they aren't doing so hot either. Any advice on what to say to her?
