Swear words don't define an "abusive" relationship entirely. Ask yourself these questions: Have you ever raised your voice to your spouse? Have you ever raised your hand (as if to hit) to your spouse? Have you ever made threats (real or just words like, "I'm going to kill you!") to your spouse? Have you ever thrown objects at or near your spouse? Do you drink or use drugs that may cause emotions to run high or you to become agitated easily? If you have children, have they ever become involved in a fight? If you can answer 'Yes' to even one of these questions, your actions may deemed abusive even if you've kept the foul laungae to a minimum. Sounds like some counseling may be in order to preserve this relationship.

After being in a verbally abusive relationship does the victim often become the abuser in her next relationship?

It does often happen that people will learn how to get their way through verbal aggression, from their own experiences of being verbally abused. Life is an endless learning experience, but sometimes people learn the wrong things. Answer I think it COULD happen but I think it would be the exception and not the rule. Victims in these kinds of situations are usually not abusive types of people - that's why they are victims. If it is an adult who grew up in a verbally abusive environment they may be the victim for a while and then finally snap and turn the tables and become the abuser but I think in most circumstances the victim would not become the abuser in the next relationship.
