No, minor verbal attacks are not generally considered abusive. Try to get into couple's therapy. If you have grown children, maybe they could help you talk about professional help.

Are you verbally abusive if you have spoken approximately six cuss words in a 30-year relationship during an outpouring of pent-up frustration?

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.

How do abusive women treat submissive husbands?

In my experience an abusive woman will increase the level of abuse in the relationship as long as the submissive husband tolerates it or allows it to go on. In my own case, I was conditioned to fear my wife and to accept all punishments. An abuser requires a spouse who is weak and submissive and takes the abuse.

How do you break up after a 20 year relationship?

Whether you were married; living together then it is wise to privately write down on a piece of paper the reasons you want to break up and then in another column write down the good things about your spouse. Put the paper away for a week or two and reread it to be sure you are making a wise move and not making a big mistake. If you find your spouse to be abusive in any way or controlling; antisocial, etc., then it is time to sit down with your spouse and be honest in asking for a divorce. If your spouse is physically abusive then you will have to give your spouse this information with a male family member present (not another male friend because it would make matter worse.) If your spouse is not abusive in any way then at least try marriage counseling and give the marriage a chance. Sometimes the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence.

Is a spouse keeping a log or journal of an occasional disagreement without Abuse threats or violence Abusive Some literature on Abuse imply this activity as Abusive?

* No, keeping a log or journal of an occasional disagreement on a spouse is not abuse, but it is strange behavior. Your partner may feel that you are abusive and is reading material and keeping the log or journal to prove to themselves and perhaps you that indeed you are verbally abusive (even if you are not.) It would be wise to communicate well with your spouse and get to the bottom of this problem. All the reading on verbal abuse and logs or journal entries will not fix anything that is wrong in the marriage. The only other possible reason for this behavior is if your spouse is a psychologist; psychiatrist or taking a psych course.
