I’m so sorry that you are both going through this. No man has the right to do that to a woman. Your cousin may open up to you and she may not but honestly, I think its worth the effort.

I would definitely talk to her. It isn’t going to be easy, but this may be the push that she needs to leave (if that’s what she wants). It is not easy for an absue victim, any kind of abuse, to ask for help. Let her know your family loves her and is there for her and will help her in any way you can. She may not open up at all but at least you tried. Also be prepared for the “consequences” that if the husband finds out he’ll most likely cut her contact off from you.

This sure is a tought one.  I have a cousin that is in a similiar situation and has been for years but she won’t leave.

I think you just try to get her alone, if you can, and maybe bring up the non answered phone calls from your mom.  Then just jump in there and ask if he’s laid a hand on her or what has been going on in their relationship.  Him cutting her off from the people that love and care about her is a dangerous step.  You could also check out the library or amazon and see if there are some books about this. 

I’m sorry you have this going on, but I’m glad she has family that is there for her. Good Luck

I’d suggest getting advice from your local DV facility or the DV hotline for this.


Women are killed everyday by their spouses & SO’s, I think it’s worth it to get expert guidance in this situation.
