This is not the stuff of a viable civil lawsuit. Get family counseling, or change your circumstances.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
I agree with Ms. McCall. There is no civil violations of any kind. In other words, there is no legal injury for which any party can claim legal damages. This is just everyday stuff. The wife may have legal claims against an abusive husband but if she chose to ignore it, nothing else can be done.
Only see a licensed attorney before you make any decision. This answer may not be perfect in any given situation. However, more fact may be required by your local attorney.
