There are a very few that might fall through the cracks, but it's rare. Abusers love what they do because they love the control they have. They are basically grown up bullies! So, there is no way they are apt to go for counseling to straighten themselves out, because an abuser doesn't like taking orders from ANYONE! Marcy

Will an emotional and verbal abuser ever stop abusing even in a new relationship?

Abuse stems from the abuser, not from the relationship - so a change of partner won't in itself change much (or anything). An abuser needs appropriate counselling or therapy to deal with the problem. The first step of course is for him or her to acknowledge that there is a problem and that needs attending to. I hope this is some help. All the best - Joncey

If you cannot forgive your abuser any longer are you wrong to leave even if he says he will change and wants it to be like it was in the early days?

It is never wrong to abandon an abuser - especially if you find that you can forgive him no longer. It is not wrong to leave an abuser, his statements that he will change, even if he feels he is sincere, most likely are not. chances are any changes he would make would be temporary and it will not ever be like the early days again. you have changed and matured that is why you cannot forgive him. you know you deserve better! Don't ever regret leaving your abuser. How many times before did he say he would "change?" How often have you heard those words. Has he come through yet? It will never be like the early days, because those were days when he put the charm on to lure you in.

The love turns to hate because the reality of what the abuser did sets in.
