    Trudy, of course it’s not fair,. There is no acceptable reason for a man to abuse his wife. And if countless church “leaders told you that, they are wrong. Not only wrong, but they need to stop giving bad advice to these abusive husbands and abused wives,and hold these men accountable. If you have studied your bible, you know that Jesus would never condone abusing anyone, let alone a wife or child. You would no doubt be better off living alone if this is what your marriage consists of.

    Please read this article. I think it will help you understand the truth about abusive men in churches and also abusive pastors who give lopsided, bias, wrongheaded so-called advice.

    I have been told by countless church leaders that I am the problem when it comes to looking at the abuse that happened in my marriage. As a result I have decided to live alone since this is the view of e as a woman. This is not fair!!!
