After listening to both sides of the story, in the past six weeks, we can conclude that their marriage was a really troubled one. Both claim abuse and fights.

Some fans have even suggested that two seek personal help from a therapist as well. @SusanisSpeaking wrote “I wish the judge and jury would require both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard to get serious, long term counseling. What a dysfunctional pair.”

Another fan tweeted on the trial becoming a sensation:

The couple had sought the support of a marriage counselor before.

On the third day of the trial, the marriage counselor of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard testified in court. Lauren Anderson is a clinical psychologist. She had told the court that the two had confessed that both of them were physically abusive in the relationship. Also, she told that Amber Heard had a “jackhammer style of talking” and Depp has trouble keeping. This would trigger the actress.

She added, “And then with Ms. Heard, [Depp] was triggered and they engaged as what I saw as mutual abuse.” She said that when Heard was “triggered” by something Depp did, she considered it a “point of pride” to “initiate” a fight, and “if [Depp] was going to leave her to deescalate the fight, she would strike him to keep him there.”
