Anger

Thu, Apr 2nd 2009

If someone blows up, cusses at you, pushes you and grabs you and threatens to break your car window because you gave a male person a ride to the store, (he thought it was cheating and I wasn't), will it most likely happen again? The person acting this way was beaten as a child and has trust issues. He said he would never hit me but had an assault charge against him with his exwife. He said it was a false report, but, he slapped her. Help! Confused, Is he abusive?
