My dad spends every evening being just as awful to my mom. He is spending every bit of energy every night trying to convince my mom he never loved her and he has only been using her (for 32 years-and they have been happy) to take care of him. I don’t understand, and know I might not ever. It is so hard to see how this is breaking her. She is starting to believe him because it is daily. I am at a loss. Words of encouragement and shared experiences are appreciated.
