This man's story of his life with an abusive wife is compelling, gut-wrenching, and ultimately—inspiring. 

It's a must read for any man who's wondered why his relationship is so painful, why he can't seem to please his wife or girlfriend no matter what he does, or is spinning with deciding whether to stay in a difficult relationship or end it.

Parental Alienation Hurts

Parental Alienation Hurts 0
