duh. and robert was abusive mainly because cersei was a bitch remember. i cant imagine him wife beating lyanna, he's still hung up over her which makes him hate cersei more. Honestly, youre going on and on about the romantic appeal of the R+L theory, but you sjhy away from the ugly side of romance, robert was in love but he lost lyanna. now hes married to skankerella and his only love in the the grave. i think anyone here would turn to booze and if you had roberts appetite, and cersei was being a frigit bitch, you'd find a brothel too.
