    Just let her go I'm sure somehow she is a VICTIM of an abusive man at least sometime during her life. After all we know they are everywhere..

      To the person that says it was an abusive relationship, you are a biased idiot. Just cuz a wife tries to have her husband killed doesnt make it an abusive relationship. Sometimes everything can be “normal” and things like this happen.
