    Why is that second caller laughing at what he husband does to her?

    Kay; sometimes people laugh and it’s nervous laughter; a knee reaction when discussing difficult issues with strangers. Even though the NLL counselors are very warm and sincere, it’s probably a nervous habit.

      Also I think perhaps sometimes it’s a way to fill in the empty time when not talking, like saying ‘um’ Can also be a way of downplaying the situation, or perhaps just an insecurity on her part.
