Domestic Violence - Marriage
Domestic violence can take several forms, including neglect, physical harm, verbal, sexual, or emotional abuse. It is a pattern of behaviour from one person to another in a domestic setting, such as a marriage, or within a family home. Often times, the abuser feels justified in their actions and is not concerned that the violence will be reported. Intimate partner violence occurs when one spouse or partner in a marriage or relationship is violent to the other partner. This can occur in both opposite-sex, and same-sex marriages and relationships, and the victims are most often women. Domestic violence can range from subtle actions, such as name-calling, to severe violent actions such as beating a spouse. Any form of mistreatment that results in mental, emotional or physical harm can be considered a form of abuse. Do you have concerns about domestic violence or abuse within your own marriage, or that of a loved one? Or do you wish to report a friend whom you think may be in need of help or protection, but don’t know who to call? Would you like to seek care and treatment following domestic violence?
