Prhoshay, I disagree. I think the problem here is that you are equating bad to abuse. I'm not. A spouse can do bad things that are not abusive. And there ARE varying degrees of bad. If a husband chooses to go out with the boys for some drinks rather than coming home and helping with bath time, that's bad. But that's not as bad as having an affair. Going to a strip club when your wife asks you not to is bad. That's not as bad as gambling away so much money that your family loses its house. So yes, I stand behind the notion that from what we have seen on TV, not filling in any extra blanks or making any extra assumptions, we've been presented with far more concerning behavior from Brooks than we have Ryan. I just don't buy into the notion that after years of most of us saying that Brianna is a smart woman with a good head on her shoulders, than suddenly after one incident she's a lost soul who is repeating the cycle of her mother and doesn't have a clue.
