My daughter has been married 2 years. She is 20 and her husband is 25. I treated my son-in-law like a son in every way. This weekend I got a call from my daughter - she wanted me to pick her up. She was driving and they were arguing and he started hitting her on the back of the head. She told me later that it wasn't the first time he has hit her. I don't know how to treat my son-in-law now. My feelings for him have changed. What do I do? I don't want to alienate my daughter either as she has chosen to stay with him despite the abuse. I know I can't make this decision for her but just have to be here for her. Any advice from other moms?
