Hello. My name is ***** *****

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, generally, emotional and/or verbal abuse / insults between two legally married spouses would not be legally actionable and unfortunately, generally there would not be any legal recourse under similar circumstances, unless there is some type of actual physical or criminal activity involved as well.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
