Since when does the Torah condone an "abusive" husband, and that a woman should stay with such a one? The Torah is not a totalitarian set of rules, but does leave to interpretation on the basis of Chesed. Otherwise no-one could stand, and that is why we have the Talmud which is the record of the interpretation of these laws, and yeshivot to this day. How can the Torah condone cruelty and injustice?
