: If a greek boy has been controlled and verbally and emotionally abused as a kid by his parents - does that give him the right to verbally and emotionally abuse his wife if he doesn't know the difference because he was brought up in that kind of environment?
It's true that how you are brought up may condition you for how you behave and react as an adult. BUT that never gives a person the excuse or the right to abuse ANYONE even if they were abused as a youngster. No one EVER, EVER, EVER has the right to abuse anyone else. There are many other people out there who have also been abused but know that it's wrong of them to do the same as an adult and infact turn out to be very good people. I urge this man to seek counselling IMMEDIATELY to overcome this attitude and behaviour.
