How Do I Know When I’m Being Abused Even Though My Husband Says He Loves Me?
Abused women often don't describe their situations as abusive because their husbands tell them that they love them. The excuse is that "things just got out of hand" and "it will never happen again." The reality is that when women begin to tell their stories to others, they are often shocked to hear that they are being abused. Abuse is always abuse no matter what the excuse.
