he admitted he had a problem and is seeking help

  • I'm inclined to say that most don't; only a select few might actually be successful. Admitting the problem and seeking help is just step one of a very long process that really comes with no guarantees.

  • I'm not sure, I think that with lots of counseling it MAY be possible, but I think that if your spouse is abusive he needs to prove to you that he's changed and you shouldn't trust that he's changed immediately.

  • I think only if the person want to. They can only do it on their own. But I wouldn't stay with an abusive man even if he says he has changed. They all say that then WHAM they go back hitting again. I say find out if he really changed at a distance.
