Can a man who has never been abusive before, suddenly change and become abusive towards his wife after 5 years of marriage?

And is suddenly developing an explosive temper, (cornering one's wife during an argument and shouting, kicking/punching/throwing things, physically restraining her, and apologizing only to do the same thing the following day), actually abuse or is it just a sign of a really awful temper?

    There might be some physiological change that creates this. Might be curable.

    Don't hang around.


    If he wants you back, insist on a full physical and psychiatric evaluation, with YOU being informed by the doctors of the results.

    To be followed by months of marriage counselling before you will even consider getting back with him.

    I used to volunteer at our local battered women's shelter.

    You don't want to be there, although it is preferable to ending up in the City morgue.

    If he's been with her for 5 years... and catered to her craziness, and now has snapped?

    Yes. It's possible.

    Can also be inspired by outside influences, whispering in his ears... that motivates him to be abusive. Like... someone, talking trash about his wife... if ever he vents.

    It's possible... the abuse is often a result of frustrations in the other parts of his life
