If any man (or woman, for that matter) verbally or physically abuses you on any kind of regular basis...you need to get the heck out of that relationship....and the sooner the better.
The longer you are in it, the more damage that is done (and the more serious the repercussions).
Only one advisement to give in these situations...RUN for the hills.

Can I chime in as a man? I realize this will be met with skepticism, but I was both verbally and phsically abused in my marriage. I would say they both left some good marks, but the self realization that I was not the person I was told I was for so many years is still an ongoing process. I still deal with the mental aspect, even though I KNOW I did not deserve what I got.
