    Domestic Violence/Is EB a Battered Wife?

    Do you think AB is a batterer? Do you believe he battered EB? Or was it the other way around? Did EB abuse him? I personally feel these 2 were toxic people and it was a very violent home!!

    My guess is they are both violent people, but I tend to think EB is more violent than AB. Just a guess based on what we have heard so far.

    I wish I could find that pic I just saw of EB having a major black bruise under her left eye.

    That's probably the likely scenario. Both prone to violent acting out stuff. But who knows. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    Both resorted to violence whenever an argument moved past what they had the intellectual ability to navigate, which was often IMO.

    I thought one of EB's daughters said she gave her the black eye?

    As we still don't know a great deal re AB background, it is possible he had those tendencies.

    Either way whether he did or didn't I am thinking that he perhaps suffered from the hostage syndrome where they end up sharing their grievances and ended up getting worse over time.

    I think, like many of you, both were prone to violence and anger.

    That said though often it appears a relationship is mutually abusive when it really isn't as well. An abuser has a way of making their victim appear to be the unstable one - usually after prolonged abuse.

    Years into my marriage my ex went into a rage - I became so angry myself and felt so hopeless that I started screaming back, hurling insults, and throwing anything in reach. Now, I wasn't the abusive one in our marriage but to anyone just looking at that screenshot in our marriage it would have looked like I was the aggresor. Not saying this is the case here but I felt it important to mention that not every abuse case is as cut and dry as it appears.

    I agree it was most likely a very violent home. From what I've read about their virtual world activities, I can see it easily coming into real life as well.

    I've tried before but now, I just can't give AB a pass for any of this. Even if he was the one being abused, it seems as if he could have gotten himself out of it. Or at the very least, he could have had Zahra removed from the situation. By all accounts, Zahra had a very loving family & friends in Oz. If AB had let anyone know there was a problem, I really believe they would have helped him & Zahra come home.

    No matter how it started, I hold both EB & AB equally responsible for what happened to Zahra. They should face the most severe punishment afforded by law.

    All JMHO

    That's my thinking too, Mrs. G., based not only on my own overall onservations of the relationship, but also on things former neighbors and family members have reported.

    She looks capable of giving what she gets..I'm not concerned of her using this as a possible defense. She looks like a woman that could get hit in the mouth, spit out a tooth, smile, yell game on and start fighting back. I think they both were violent.

    Being battered and abused is no excuse for taking it out on a child... especially one who is disabled. If that's going to be her defense, God help her... I don't think the jury is going to have much sympathy for either one of them.

    To answer the question of this thread........let's see..............how can I put this.........

    I believe if EB was a battered woman than I'm the Queen of England!

    There how's that? Guess it shows where I stand on this EB being abused.

    Isn't it a common thing for the abuser to claim that he/she is the abused? Kinda like to deflect judgement?

    Still wish we had more background on AB when he lived in Oz. That would surely help.
