From the Divorce Court

The court heard that the couple had been married for 21 years but in recent years their relationship "had hit an all time low". Mr Gallanagh claimed that his client had endured "continued mental abuse" over a period of about five years which had taken its toll on her. He said Mr Martin had routinely questioned his wife's parental skills and had started a new business venture without her knowledge.

Hmmm. I hope the "continued mental abuse" included criticising her cooking.

Mental illness is a great unspoken matter in this country; and there are a large number of personality disordered people in positions of authority, marriages etc.

It may be that this woman is on medications to control depression - and rarely do we know the real story about such matters and how often SSRIs are involved in marital disputes
