Can My Emotionally Abusive Husband Change?

At BTR.ORG, one of the most frequent questions women ask is, “Can my abusive husband change?”

Whether from secret pornography use, infidelity, emotional abusiveness, or other devastating forms of relational abusiveness, women want to know if there’s a reason to keep holding out.

Victims of Emotional Abuse Must Get to Safety First

The answer is, yes, your husband can change. Will he? That is up to him.

Do you have to wait around and be abused while he figures out if he wants to join you and your children?

No. And you shouldn’t.

BTR.ORG doesn’t advocate divorce or staying in the marriage: we advocate for safety.

Effective Boundaries Protect Women and Children From Emotional Abuse

Whether victims stay married to, separate from, or divorce the abuser, boundaries are absolutely essential in protecting women and their children from further abuse.

Boundaries are not statements, requests, or ultimatums. They are courageous actions that women take to separate themselves and their children from abusive behavior.

How Will I Know If My Husband Is Changing?

For women who choose to stay married, but courageously separate themselves from abusive behavior, the question remains: how do they know when and if their partner has stopped being abusive?

Lundy Bancroft has outlined 13 Signs of Change that can help victims gauge if their partner is unsafe, becoming safe, or a truly safe person.

Education Empowers Victims of Emotional Abuse

At BTR, we believe that as women educate themselves about trauma and abuse, they are better-equipped to make informed decisions and become empowered to begin their journeys to healing.

Tune in to The BTR.ORG Podcast to learn more about emotional abuse and how to navigate your journey to emotional safety.
