What if your spouse came to you and told you they were being abused?
What if your spouse went on to tell you that you know their abuser quite well?
What if your spouse further went on to tell you that *you* are the abuser?
Often times abuse shows up with bruises and gashes. More often though, the abuse has no physical scars. Physical scars heal, emotional scars take longer, and they can cut you deep inside where no one would suspect a thing. Even the abuser.
