Cindy and Trevor have been married for 16 years, though they’ve been together for even longer. Cindy also says that Trevor has been abusive for almost 20 years… but that she still loves him.
The husband says it’s Cindy’s snooping, accusations of cheating, and constant nagging that force him to blow up with physical and verbal abuse. Cindy shockingly agrees.
She says she knows she’s mouthy, and she thinks she gets what she “deserves” for egging him on. In a clip aired on Dr. Phil, Trevor even says that he “doesn’t exactly remember” pushing his once eight-and-a-half-months-pregnant wife out of a moving car.
Thankfully, Cindy called Dr. Phil in the knick of time. He and his wife Robin McGraw have important words for Cindy, her husband, and everyone else out there who might be trapped in an abusive or dangerous relationship: It is not your fault and it could never be your fault.
If you’re ever hurt emotionally or physically by someone in your life, especially a partner, and you find yourself making excuses or placing blame in places that don’t make sense, you need to get out and seek help.
No one should ever be treated with anything less than respect and love, and no one should ever lay a hand on a woman. Domestic violence is a major problem in our world. Sometimes, it’s scarier to leave and let someone find you than it is to stay in a toxic cycle you can at least predict.
But there are lots of people out there who want to help. If you or anyone you know is in a potentially dangerous situation, call 911 or a domestic-abuse hotline, and get out.
