  • Just your daughter. His behavior was unnacceptable, and just because you daughter takes it, it doesn't mean you have to accept it. I would be telling her that you do not approve of him because she deserves to be treated gently and respectfully. Give her some crisis numbers and an educationbal brochure. You don't want them to be bringing kids into the relationship, it will damage them.

  • As abusive relationships go, I bet she won't stay w/o him. I sure would try to just let her stay tho.

  • Even I would tell her she can stay but as for him.....nope. I mean that is a news story waiting to happen. We see far too many times where the abuser snaps and kills everyone in the house. Your DD really needs to get out of that situation.
