Our expert says:
Of course he is behaving very unreasonably --- but there's something unreasonable in the way she accepts his abuse and enables him to proper within it. Why shouldn't he pay the utility bills ? Why can't she buy and prepare only enough food for herself, if he won't pay towards the food ? Wouldn't it be better for her to move out, as it would probably cost her less to support herself than it does at present to support him as well as herself ?
Basically, though, it's a sadly typical story of abuse, a man who does the abusing, and a woman who enables him to continue doing so, and fails to protect herself. Maybe POWA can advise ?
