My abusive wife is getting worse…I'm terrified of what she'll do next

DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife threatened to take my head off with a shovel last week. She pinned me to the bed and choked me.

I’m a man of 32 and my wife is 30. She was lovely for our first three years together but the nightmare began when we got married.

She started with mood swings and depression which were at first managed with medication.

But six months ago, she knocked the meds right down thinking she no longer needed them.

Since then she’s been so unpredictable. It used to be just verbal abuse but now she’s violent and physically abusive.

I’m terrified of what she might do next.

DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds as if getting married stirred up a whole load of distress, probably connected to your wife’s early years, but she sounds now to be mentally unwell and the situation you are in is very dangerous.

If your wife turns violent again dial 999 straight away.

Explain what is happening to your wife’s GP and talk to the Men’s Advice Line who support men in abusive relationships (mensadviceline.org.uk, 0808 801 0327).
