An argument is a discussion which needs to take place, and sometimes it is not an easy topic. If one party escalates it there is some reason they don't want to deal with the issue and are stonewalling. The person bringing up the topic is not to blame for the abusive response. There can be an agreement between two people to talk about the topic at some mutually agreeable time, and that may work better if one party is on the defensive.

If can, but it still doesn't make the abuse OK. Abuse is never OK, not matter what "caused" it.

The answer would have to be no, since the abuser is responsible for their actions...not the one being abused. To say an argument provoke the abuse is so the abuser can blame someone else for their actions...the abuser never takes responsibility for their own actions. If an argument provoke an abuse attack then rest assure the abuser will say....You started the argument.

Imagine a child in the playground being verbally teased by a group of children. Imagine the child being spat on and verbally abused until the child looses sight of reality. There is a good chance the child will turn in and cry or respond by loosing its temper and hit anything and anyone doing the abusing. Who is the abuser the verbal abusers or the child which lashed out?

the example that has been quoted -of the abused child lashing out.Well, all i will say is that there has to be a marked difference between a grown-up and a child.Secondly,in the instance mentioned its the question of protecting one's self-respect,but if the argument is between 2 lovers or husband-wife then i do not feel that it would be of that extreme nature.And if the abuser's self -esteem and tolerance level is so low that he/she cannot hold his/her own in the argument like a mature adult???.Do i need to add anyhting further?

No. However it will reveal if you are in fact dealing with an abuser and if you are wise you'll take the cues and get out.
