A Broken Marriage
Jaime claims Jay began abusing her on a weekly basis just six days into their marriage and continued to do so even after their 7-month-old son was born.
Jay admits he’s verbally and physically abusive but says Jaime needs to “stop playing the victim” and admit that she’s also guilty of “erratic” behavior.
Still, Jaime says she would consider saving her relationship with Jay if they could get help.
How does Jay explain his behavior? And, how did he respond when Jaime got pregnant?
Why has Jaime stayed in this situation?

Robin’s Fight against Domestic Violence
Robin takes Dr. Phil cameras on an unprecedented tour of Laura’s House, a domestic violence shelter and agency serving women and children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence.
“When women go to shelters, there is amazing secrecy, because husbands can stalk them, they can find them, they can hurt them, they can kill them,” Dr. Phil says.
