I'm wondering what constitutes verbal abuse?
I have a friend who has arguments with her long-term boyfriend that usually involve name-calling. Not low-down horrible names but more like accusations..."you don't trust me, you're too suspicious" or "you're being bitchy" or "stop being a control-freak". Nothing dreadful but the fights are frequent, usually about money and work commitments. He has called her the b word several times but she is kind of an instigator too, although I know no-one should be called any name. She has called him the male 'b' word too as well as the 'a' word.
Is this verbal abuse or just two people going about their relationships in a bad way?
