  • If he is contantly yelling at her, then that is emotional or mental abuse and it is NOT ok. She needs to get into therapy and so does he. If he won't she goes alone. Mental/emotional abuse can lead to physical abuse.

  • that is what I wondered. like last night she said the puppy was excited to see him and he kept shoving it out of the way. When she said don't be rough he started yelling saying she cared more about the puppy than him by saying things to him like that way.

I am not married so I wasn't sure if this was just marital spats.
