I have found that emotional abuse in a marriage leads to physical illnesses that in turn destroy a woman's life. That therefore equates to the same thing as physical abuse. 
In searching for help in my marriage I approached a godly older woman- a pastor's wife after I was violently raped by my ex-husband... she sided with my husband.... there is no pat answer for abuse in marriage.. 
I would therefore advise an abused wife-either physical or emotional abuse- to leave for a time until or if the husband submits to church discipline or agrees to marriage counselling and then to approach a reconciliation only after proof of repentance.
It is simply too detrimental to a woman's health to stay in an abusive marriage without any hope of improvement. It is simply too hard to handle...

Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. Malachi 2:14


  1. Amen. And shame shame on that pastor's wife. I work at a police department and I see the results of abuse. There is no excuse for allowing abuse of ANY kind in your home. Thank God you got out.

    1. Thank you Maria. Apparently I wasn't submissive enough! It was good that I didn't let that destroy my faith... however that marriage lasted another 16 years... far too long now that I look back! Blessings and thanks for commenting, Maria.
