verbal abuse

Dr. Pepper Schwartz
Q: How does one stop verbal abuse and harsh sarcasm from a mate of 46 years so the tween grandchild isn't exposed to an unloving grandparent environment? It's hard because I rely 100 percent on my husband for financial support. Are there assistance programs for those who are not poverty level but in fact own a small business? In my situation, there is a need for a lack of oppression, some peace and cohesive support in the home. But leaving an angry spouse, who is nearly 70 years old, is causing a lot of guilt! Thanks for ideas. -- JM
