Unfortunately, emotional abuse is often minimized or overlooked—even by the person being abused.
Studies indicate that if your spouse/partner has injured you once, it is likely he will continue to physically assault you.
The physical assaults stopped when you became passive and gave up your right to express yourself as you desire, to move about freely and see others, and to make decisions. This can be as equally frightening and is often more confusing to try to understand.
There isn’t a “better” or “worse” form of physical abuse; you can be severely injured as a result of being pushed, for example.
The incidents of physical abuse have only occurred one or two times in the relationship.
When people think of domestic abuse, they often focus on domestic violence.
