Is It Emotional Abuse Or Is It Not?
Anger and fighting in a marriage does not automatically constitute verbal or emotional abuse.
The primary distinction between an unhealthy and a dysfunctional relationship or a marriage that is abusive is the "intent" of the emotionally abusive wife or the verbally abusive husband.
What Is The "Intent" Of An Emotionally Abusive Wife and a Verbally Abusive Husband?
A verbally and emotionally abusive wife seeks to control and humiliate her husband. Achieving this is her intent and goal.
An emotionally and verbally abusive husband wants to break his wife's spirit so she can offer him no resistance as he intimidates and bullies to achieve his selfish purpose.
The intent of both a verbally and emotionally abusive wife and an emotionally and verbally abusive husband is to dominate and control.
