Quite a bit of this above could be self-imposed if she's dealing with psychological and emotional issues.Theresa May, the Home Secretary, published proposals for a new offence of “domestic abuse” designed to criminalise men who bully, cause psychological harm or deny money to their partners.
The law would make the worst cases of non-violent “controlling behaviour” a jailable offence.
Exact terms of the offence are yet to be defined, but it could involve humiliating, frightening or intimidating a partner, keeping them away from friends or family or restricting their access to money.
And in the US a HUGE number of women (and men) have psychological and emotional issues that they're actively seeking help for. So - for me, it would be a lot of 'sending innocent guys to jail who never did anything wrong - ever' all because 'their wives are depressed or manic'.
