If you are talking about Arthur (?) Birling, the father, then that is exactly what he was. A man who has joined the middle classes from a solidly working-class background, and has done various things in his life to cement his place there. In doing so, he is trying to forget his past, and there … Read more

Dear Goaty McSheepson,

No; I doubt that Malthus (1766-1834), a clergyman, would ever have suggested euthanasia. He saw population as limited by war, disease, and famine; and his suggestion for an alternative to that, was a form of moral restraint.

Well .. I can't say what has transpired to 'change' his behaviour. THAT could be attributed to many things .. Hormones, pressure and stress, emotional damage .. You name it.

Just based on what you wrote he has undergone a major unexpected change. Something has happened to him you are not aware of. If he fails to confide in you yes it is time to move on. Life is too short for all the uneeded drama.

Zero tolerance for abusive relationships. If he cannot speak about his problems, or deal with his emotions in a non abusive manner then leave. He is meant to love you, not abuse you. Best thing you can do for him and yourself is to tell him, "I'm not putting up with this, you sort yourself … Read more

Well DJ if he is verbally and physically abusive you need to move on and get him out of your life, situations like that never get better they only get worse.
