Marriage and the Family
READ THIS CASE STUDY
Joe and Mary are married for 6 years. Between them, they have five children. Both of them were previously married. Joes ex-wife claimed physical and mental abuse. Joe grew up with a physically abusive father and Mary lived with an over-possessive mother, was insecure, and suggest that men cannot love. Mary has a six-month-old baby still breastfeeding. Joe is not happy when Mary is feeding the baby. There is a lack of communication between Mary and Joe when it comes to family issues. He becomes angry. Mary is afraid he will hurt the baby.
Joe had been physically abusive to his biological children. Where there is a conflict, Joe’s solution was physical punishment. He was never abusive to Mary or her biological children. Friends have indicated to Mary that Joe needs help, but Mary feels that Joe has changed.
Marys older daughter is afraid of Joe because her half-brother has told her stories of Joes behavior. Mary depends on Joe for financial support and feels that she cannot separate from him. Joe denies responsibility for former abuse and blames others for his behavior, and states that he loves Mary and his children. Joe and Mary have never discussed abuse.
