Domestic Violence Does Not Just Occur Between Husband and Wife
Any act, or even an implied act, of violence directed at a person whom you have shared an intimate relationship with can be deemed as domestic abuse. Besides physical acts of violence against the person, it can also be any act that threatens or harms a partner’s property in order to serve the purpose of intimidation, coercion, revenge, or control.
Another common misconception is that this is only restricted to live-in couples – boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife. The term “domestic abuse” also applies to previously married couples, ex-partners, boyfriends and girlfriends that don’t reside together, and parents of the same child. Domestic violence is also called spousal abuse, domestic abuse or spousal violence and includes physical as well as emotional abuse.
Domestic abuse can also arise from any of the following situations:
- Physical Abuse
- Battery (including pushing or shoving)
- Emotional Abuse
- Sexual abuse
