That is the difficulty with the term "abuse"...

[13] Allegations of abuse may be a symptom of the failure of a relationship. Blame is an inherent part of the allegation. Sometimes it is wholly warranted; other times it is not. When parties are not communicating, any slight or criticism is magnified. There is a tendency to minimize the other spouseís good qualities and maximize the bad. Warring spouses are rarely in a position to step back and evaluate the otherís behaviour with objective eyes. Nor are they able to critically assess their own behaviour...
Good Luck!
