Is there such a thing as emotional abuse? My uncle is suffering right now with emotional problems because of his wife. The wife only give problems and when the problems can't be resolve, she would blame my uncle immediately.

Oh, yes, definitely.  Emotional abuse comes in many forms.  Think about people who dominate others.  Maybe they shout, maybe they are always degrading the other, or maybe they never listen at all.  I think what is a real problem is just that people don't give it the weight that they do the physical abuse.

I see emotional abuse all around me all the time.  I usually see it with a man being abusive to the woman, but it could be the other way around too.  People get feeling like they are not worthy because they are talked down to all the time.  It's still abuse and the people need counseling to get out of the situation.

EMotional abuse is very real and the effects can be longer lasting than a punch in the face.   I was a victim of emotional abuse by my parents and it caused me some lifelong problems until I found this site and began to learn how to work through these issues.   There are a lot of good books out there on this issue. I would suggest getting one for your uncle to read.   Codependency can be the result of emotional abuse.   A good book is "Codependent No More".

Emotional abuse definitely exists. And it can sometimes be more harmful than physical abuse. It sounds like your aunt needs to get some help and soon. If she refuses to go by herself, maybe your uncle could convince her to go to marriage counseling. Regardless, she needs to talk to someone so she can work through her problems without taking everything out on your uncle.

My uncle always try to go to counselling. The problem is that the counselling doesn't work on my aunt. She thinks that she is always right and that my uncle is the one who has the problem although it is very clear that she is denying her fault.

Yes emotional abuse has the capacity to ruin a family life. That is why a good counselling is important to come out of emotional abuse stress, else the result can be too dangerous.

A person has to get fixed and whole and be right with themself before they can bring others into the fold.
