    Very interesting…my daughters always ask how you can tell BEFORE you marry if a guy will be violent or mean spirited AFTER marriage. Hopefully your answers will fill in gaps where mine fall short! God bless your outreach to women with this much needed topic.

    Thank you for the encouragement because it’s a scarey topic to tackle! Debby, I plan to cover how to spot an abuser before marriage in about 4 posts! I’ve got 16-18 posts sketched out: why an abuser abuses, why the abused stay, Biblical options, untwisting the verses in an abuser’s arsonal, etc. It’s a whole ‘nother universe!

    Good on you, and thank you for having the courage to put this much needed information out there, and expand upon a topic that is difficult and rarely talked about.
