Wife alienating friends with her anger, verbal abuse | Observer-Reporter

We forget that it is not only partners, but friends that can be verbally abused. Here is a great answer to this husbands questions about the wife alienating friends. I especially like the last sentence in Annie's advice!

Annie’s Mailbox: Wife alienating friends with her anger, verbal abuse | Observer-Reporter: " My wife has a good personality and makes friends easily. The problem is, she does not keep them. If someone rubs her wrong, she flares up in anger. If someone disagrees with her, she verbally abuses them. She also gets involved in everyone else’s personal affairs."

One of the participants in the tutorial made me cry today....

Had a woman who calls herself Memory Lane finish section one of the tutorial today. Here is part of what she wrote:

 "and the law continues to allow the behavior because the lead investigator in this town has known him for over twenty years, so drops his charges every time"

 I wanted to cry--this is one of the few times that I would have to say it is not solely in her hands...most of the time Dr. Marshall and myself can see how a person actually "trains" their partner to behave badly--and probably Memory Lane  may have in the beginning..but now others are working against her and it will be hard to get better when her partner has the authorities in his back pocket. She MUST seek professional help.

What do you think?
