    My mum is getting married in the spring and I'm supposed to be a bridesmaid, however, I despise and am scared of the man she is marrying. He moved in with us last year and has made my life nothing but hell, ripping my bedroom door off and screaming in my face, threatening to kill my cats and making snide jokes about me.

    My mum really wants me to be there but I don't support the wedding at all and I don't know what to do.

    Yes, my mum knows how I feel about him and the wedding. I might have to sit down and talk to her again.

    Honestly I would support your mum. She will do this anyway and if she has an abusive partner it's important that she keeps her relationships with people around her intact.

    ^This. Though kind of think about moving out, if you haven't already.

    I will take on board what you're saying and I'll speak to her when I get the chance to.

    Move out. Move out. Move out!

    Also do all the Machiavelian / Game of Throne type tricks you can to turn your mum against this man before she marries him. Get all your other relatives and friends of you and your mum on board with this.

    He is going to make your mum;s life hell. 100% guaranteed.

    She's a fool for marrying him.

    Trouble is, in this situation stubborn pride kicks in and the more you tell her not to marry him, the more determined she'll be to go ahead with it.

    That's why you have to be clever about this. Use reverse pschology. Catch him in a sting operation being unfaithful to her etc.
