What's wrong with him?"As far as Terry is concerned, her marriage to Michael has gone steadily downhill since their honeymoon four years ago, when she first learned the seriousness of her husband's diabetes.

Paula is an intelligent, ambitious, high-energy public relations expert who loves her work and has fairly skipped up her company's promotion ladder because, she says, "I'm good at what I do. I'm willing to work harder than anyone else. And I married the right man."The "right man" is an affable bear with a twinkle in his eye and a soft Southern accent who's held a dozen jobs in the 15 years of their marriage and is currently thinking of going back to college (again) to take a creative writing course.

Husband-killer Jane Marie Ostovitz fidgeted and shook while her lawyer described a marriage marred by alcohol, drugs, jealousy and years of psychological abuse.Her husband threw her out of the house 25 to 30 times, usually tossing her clothes on the front lawn, attorney George Lantzas said at a hearing Friday in county Circuit Court. He cut her off from her friends and family. He'd command her to cook dinner or to run out at all hours for food, then throw it on the floor.Lantzas said the 26-year-old Pasadena woman, who is 8 1/2 months pregnant with her dead husband's child, suffered from "battered-spouse syndrome" when she fatally shot Kenneth Edwin Ostovitz in the head last May 19. He asked a judge to sentence Ostovitz, who had pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in exchange for a sentence not to exceed 13 years, to a "lengthy" period of house arrest.
