4. What leads you to think he would become violent?
Is there a history of violence in the marriage? If yes, then your SIL is probably in danger and needs to obtain an order of protection. She should also know the location of the nearest women's shelter and have a bag packed and ready to run on a moment's notice. Sometimes the most difficult part is persuading the woman that she really is in danger, though. Prepare yourself for a barrage of rationalizations and denials.

I have experience with domestic violence (as a survivor and counselor)...PM me if you want more info.

Good luck to you.
