that usually means physical or emotional abuse. lots of yelling for no reason, denying her money if they shared and account ect..
It’s possible that she could of made up something just to make it look as if he was a cruel husband!
But if you’re holding against him based on what happened in his previous marriage then you shouldn’t marry him!

Another name for cruelty, or for the intentional, hostile infliction of physical or mental suffering upon another individual, which is a ground for Divorce in many states.
In divorce law, cruel and inhuman treatment can refer to either physical or mental cruelty. In order to constitute grounds for a divorce, for divorce, the treatment must have such a serious effect on the physical or mental health of the divorce-seeking spouse, that it is not safe or proper for the parties to continue to live together. There are no defenses to cruel and inhumane treatment, such as forgiveness or justification.
Physical attacks upon a spouse
Constant screaming, profanity or other verbal abuse
Publicly flaunting a relationship with another man or woman
Intentional refusal by a spouse to have sexual relations that physically effects the other spouse
To determine whether the acts amount to cruelty as a grounds for a divorce, the court will consider whether the acts of cruelty were isolated. If the acts were few and far between, the court is less likely to grant a cruelty-based divorce. Second, the court will determine if the acts were so extreme that they endangered the health of the innocent spouse. Mere rudeness is insufficient to be awarded a fault-based divorce. In order to be awarded the divorce grounded on physical cruelty, the innocent spouse usually must corroborate his or her testimony of cruelty and must show a connection between the cruel acts and the breakdown of the marriage.
Not saying it happened, but are you willing to take that chance? Physical abusers usually don’t change their stripes just because you are new.Answer by Senthil EG Iyappan
He must be correct. Since she has not found anything to allege, she has taken this route.
The cruelty could be verbal or physical and leads to inhuman treatment.
Best of Luck.
