          "Afraid of My Husband"

          January 10, 2011

          Dr. Phil continues his mission to end the silence on domestic violence. More than 25 percent of battered women remain in a relationship with their abuser. Sonya fears that she is one of those women who stay. She says her husband’s rage is out of control, and she fears for her safety.

          Sleeping with the Enemy

          Sonya says her husband, Lawrence, kicked her in the stomach during a fight, forced her to the ground while she was pregnant and violated her in an unspeakable way. Lawrence denies his wife’s allegations and says she’s the one who gets in his face.

           

          “She undermines my authority.”


          The Tiniest Victims

          Three children stand in the middle of this turbulent relationship. The couple’s 10-year-old son, Ian, reveals what bothers him most.  


           “They watch it all.”
