Does verbally abusive constitute cruel and inhuman treatment?

The spouse alleging the cruel and inhuman treatment ground for divorce must prove that she or he suffers from cruel and inhuman treatment which endangers his or her well-being and makes it unsafe or improper to continue living with the other spouse. Unfortunately, for the spouse who seeks to end a loveless and miserable marriage against the wishes of the other spouse, mere incompatibility will not meet the statutory criteria for cruel and inhuman treatment, particularly where the marriage is of long duration. To obtain a divorce on cruelty grounds, there must be substantial evidence of cruel and inhuman treatment.
