Thank you so much. I have often wondered if he was abused, but have never asked him. He doesn't talk about himself much, most of what I know is from observing him. I asked him once if he had ever been in love with a woman & he said "maybe". You hit the nail on the head. He DOES treat woman like objects. Also, last year he referred to a woman he had never met in person (facebook friend) as his girlfriend. I have seen him get emotional about sports, but never woman. He just turned 36 (Catholic) & his mom just started pressuring him to get married & start a family. It's really upsetting him & I'm worried.
