my husband has been controlling and emotional abusive for years and we have been married for 43 years. after he retired 3 years ago and with the huge
life change of retirement and moving to south carolina suddenly all the
unresolved issues and abuse had to be dealt with and the situation got really bad.
i guess it scared me when friends told me that my husband could do a lot
of damage to me in the legal sense with those recordings. can you tell me
if this is possible? as i said it scared me when i was told they can be used
to prove me mentally disturbed. i guess i was just getting stressed out after
all he would need for a mental specialist to prove anything correct?
