Our expert says:
I don't believe that "for better or worse" ever means one should accept abuse from a spouse. I understood it to refer to working together as life swings to the better or worse, not to accepting abuse.
Maybe he is stressed, but that is no excuse for abuse - its an indication of the need for proper counselling to learn to deal better with the stress rather than throwing the stress at other people.
STAYING with an abuser is bad for kids ; leaving an abuser does them no harm.
