Friðrik once saw the passwords on Facebook and Instagram for Katla, his girlfriend. He sometimes logs in there without her knowledge to view her messages. He also regularly views Katla’s phone and he set her account to “share location” on Snapchat to see where she is. He knows that he shouldn’t do this but cannot control himself, he is so afraid that Katla is cheating on him.

One evening when Katla says she’s going out to meet with old classmates from secondary school, they have a fight because Friðrik is certain that Katla is going to cheat on him. This ends with Friðrik threatening to kill himself if she goes out.

Is this abuse?
