Abuse is such a gray area, and the manipulating that can go on with emotional or verbal abuse, in the absence of physical abuse, can cause that person to lose so much self confidence that they become oppressed and/or depressed enough to stay until the situation does, indeed, become physical.

So, I think the possibility of the MB program working in a marriage where emotional and/or verbal abuse is present is going to depend on how far the marriage has eroded and the emotional health of the woman at that given time.

So, it's a viable concern here.

MB has the potential of working in many, many circumstances, but it's going to depend on that person's individual circumstances and willingness to actually use the program.
