          "Stand Up for Yourself"

          October 06, 2005

          Have you ever felt like you had to walk on eggshells around someone, constantly worrying about how they would react to anything you said or did? What if you were married to that person?

           Trapped at Home

          Kathy and Elaine live in fear of their husbands. The men control every aspect of their lives — from how they spend their money to how they spend their time. Will these women find the strength to stand up to their controlling spouses or to escape altogether?


          Should they leave?



          Controlling Every Move

          Joan’s husband, James, won’t let her take a shower every day. He chooses her clothes and won’t let her out of the house alone. Find out what makes James so possessive.


          “I don’t want to put up with this anymore.”



          Recovered Abuser?

          David is a self-proclaimed former abuser. Now he wants to help his ex-wife heal the wounds he inflicted during their relationship, but she’s too afraid of him to accept any offers of help.


          Should David keep offering?
