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

One evening when Katla says she is 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?
