What does emotional abuse look like?
Anger and fighting in a marriage or committed relationship does not automatically constitute verbal or emotional abuse.
The primary distinction between an unhealthy and a dysfunctional committed relationship or a marriage that is abusive is the 'intent' of the emotionally abusive wife or the verbally abusive husband. Learn how to identify emotional abuse in your relationship.
What Is The 'Intent' Of An Emotionally, Verbal man or woman?
An emotionally and verbally abusive woman seeks to control and humiliate her partner. 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 woman and an emotionally and verbally abusive man is to dominate and control his partner
If your relationship is filled with anger and quarrelling, it is essential that you know if it is an emotionally abusive marriage or an unhealthy marriage. The reason is because the treatment has to match the illness.
In my anger management workbook, Stop Anger, save yourself and your family, Lesson 3, I go into detail regarding the difference between a dysfunctional marriage and an abusive marriage.
In the Stop Anger, save yourself and your family, anger management workbook there are true examples describing the intent of a verbally and emotionally abusive wife and an emotionally and verbally abusive husband and illustrating how they attempt to achieve their immoral goals.
If you are in a dysfunctional marriage or dysfunctional committed relationship, then learning relationship improvement skills will help immensely. If you are in an emotionally abusive relationship, the abuser—the verbally and/or emotionally abusive partner —you need to make some very profound changes regarding what he or she believes about marriage or a committed relationship and his or her role in it.
