          “I have been mean to Melissa in the past,” Dennis admits. “I am not a physical abuser; I am a mental and emotional abuser. I will call her names to hurt her, and I told her I would never in my life marry somebody like her.”

          Melissa says that she blames herself for Dennis’ behavior. “I want to learn and change so Dennis will stay with me,” she says.
