When a person in a marriage or an intimate relationship tries to control or dominate the other partner, it is referred to as domestic abuse. It can occur in a heterosexual as well as same-sex relationship. This is true especially when a partner is psychologically tortured as well as being abused physically. The first step in ending it is by acknowledging and noticing the signs associated with an abusive relationship. When in a relationship, both partners should live fear-free.
Domestic abuse can occur in very many forms, some of which include physical, emotional, economical, verbal as well as sexual abuse. In some states, where a female partner is suspected or found to have committed infidelity, wife beating is seen as a justified measure by the majority and may be codified into law.
It is impossible to certainly know what goes on behind closed doors, but signs and symptoms of psychological abuse will always appear. Law Office of Joyce Holcomb, family law firm in San Bernardino advises that, it is illegal and that no one is condemned to being abused by another partner as there are better ways to end it.
