I have been with a man for almost 5 years now, I am very much in love with him but he has been very physically violent with me during all of those years. We recently went through a very bad breakup over a month ago and have since gotten back together with the prerequisite being him getting help. I lived with him and his mother for over a year so she witnessed a lot of the abuse, bruises, broken nose etc during that time. He and his cousin are now suggesting that he and I apologize to his mother for all of the drama but I felt very angry about this request, I feel that she should have done something to get help for her son or at least talked to him to try to stop it (I know talking to him wouldn't have worked but it would have been the thought that another person was standing up for me that would have counted). I am very angry and resentful towards his mom because of this and I don't know if this anger and resentment is appropriate. Should I apologize?
