Please keep out it! She shouldn't be whining to you, but sitting down like an adult and talking to her husband. If he isn't listening then she has the freedom to give him choices by telling him they either need marriage counseling, better communication skills or she's walking out the door and not looking back. All marriages can go through some bumpy patches. Trust me, if you get mixed up in this relationship you'll only end up the bad guy. If you want to be there for your friend tell her the choices I mentioned, and if she isn't willing to act on any of these ideas, then you're just going to have stay out of it, listen to her for support, and offer no more advice. Good luck Marcy

The word ignore does not belong in the same sentence with the word abuse. I have never heard of a honeymoon phase, what exactly is this.

How do you know if you are in a mentally abusive relationship?

Review the warning signs and decide for yourself. A mentally abusive relationship caused two 'feelings' in me. I reacted with confusion to a pattern of speech that my abuser would use. The purpose of the mental abuse is to instill self doubt in you and then you are easier to control. The second re-action I had was a type of emotional numbness. This came after a period of crazy making verbal abuse. If you feel confused around your abuser and then notice a numbness that is a good clue that your are bing mentally manipulated.

Not if he is abusive...physically, mentally, or emotionally. Those boys will eventually get the same treatment from him as you do, he can be the father...but that doesn't mean you can't raise them without him. Get out of that relationship before you or your unborn children are hurt. And if you can't see yourself without least try. It never hurts to try, especially if he is already hurting you.
