    handful / has it coming

    Poor cow could do with a night out after all she's been going through with that swine of a husband. Mind you, she can be a bit of a handful herself when she wants to be, so half the time she probably has it coming.

    Does 'handful' mean troublesome and "it" mean "going through with that swine of a husband. "? Please.

    Yes, she can be troublesome and difficult. The suggestion is that "it" is abuse from her husband.
