I was having a conversation with a friend of mine over our SO’s. She has been with her now husband for 7 years (married for 2). She asked me if my FH ever made joking “threats”. Conserned I said no and asked why. She then told me that sometimes when they are joking around and sometimes even when they argue, her SO will tell her that he’s going to punch her in the head, break her wrist or something to that effect. Now I’ve known this guy for about 5 years, and he does not strike me as a violent guy, but what do I know right? I was really worried but didn’t know what to tell her. She said it was starting to bother her and when she told him to stop he just laughs and says something like, “you know I’d never hurt you”. The conversation switched after that, but its just been bothering me ever since. FH has never made any kind of joke even sort of like that, is that something normal? Is it a warning sign for abuse? What do you Bees think?
