Not interfere !! Im sorry but keeping these women isolated in a
relationship and making them feel as if they have no support from
family or friends is key in the abuse.
I was in an abusive relationship for 5 years. My parents “didnt
interfere”. I wish they would have. Perhaps if someone would have
forced me to make changes I wouldnt have ended in a two week
This is not about letting a daughter make her own decisions, it is
about saving a life ! Now more than a decade later, I work as a
counselor for abused women in my free time. Controling emotionally
can lead to horrific things. There is no time at all that a woman
should feel imprisoned, or unable to be herself. My advise to the
mother, is do all you can do get your daughter help, counseling, and
keep her safe.
Advising otherwise would be completely irresponsible.

> I am praying for your daughter. I am not sure there is anything
you can do. He seems to be a control freak and has a hold over her
that will take more than just her family to break. Since she is a
quite and reserved she is keeping all the emotional abuse to her
self. The one thing you can do is be there for her when the dam
breaks and she has had enough. Don’t try and break it off it can
only make things worse. Just be there for her and just let you know
you love her and respect her.
> I know you first instinct is to protect your children but there
are some things they have to do on there own. No matter how hard
you try to break them up his emotional abuse makes her feel guilty
about leaving him and he has control for know.
> Just love her and support her and above all don’t interfer.
> I would suggest you talk to counselors at the local women’s
shelter they may be able to steer you in the right direction.
