Intimate Partner Abuse

Posted on 11 December, 2019 at 19:37
October was intimate partner abuse month.  I did not get a chance to write about it. So, I will now.

It is not OK.  It is not OK to be abuse by anyone.  There is never a justifiable reason to abuse someone.  Abuse can be mental, physical, financial, emotional just to name a few types.  

Many may feel like they have no choice but to stay in an abusive relationship.  That is not true.  Yes, it will or can be a little unsettling or scary.  But, you have to keep in mind that you do not deserve to be abused.  Abuse is about control.  No adult has the right to abuse another adult.  No adult has the right to control another adult. 

To anyone that is in an intimate partner abuse relationship, get help.  There is help available.  Call this number: 1-800-799-7233.  You can also chat on line at

What is domestic partner abuse?  Domestic violence (also called intimate partner violence (IPV), domestic abuse or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship.

Here are some of the signs of domestic partner abuse:

Some of the signs of an abusive relationship include a partner who:
  • Tells you that you can never do anything right
  • Shows extreme jealousy of your friends and time spent away
  • Keeps you or discourages you from seeing friends or family members
  • Insults, demeans or shames you with put-downs
  • Controls every penny spent in the household
  • Takes your money or refuses to give you money for necessary expenses
  • Looks at you or acts in ways that scare you
  • Controls who you see, where you go, or what you do
  • Prevents you from making your own decisions
  • Tells you that you are a bad parent or threatens to harm or take away your children
  • Prevents you from working or attending school
  • Destroys your property or threatens to hurt or kill your pets
  • Intimidates you with guns, knives or other weapons
  • Pressures you to have sex when you don’t want to or do things sexually you’re not comfortable with
  • Pressures you to use drugs or alcohol

Domestic violence is a major problem in America. Do you know how many domestic violence incidents are reported and responded to by police? And how many are left unreported? The sad and tragic thing about this is that many victims die in the hands of the abuser because of the lack of law enforcement and community support. Many victims don't report it until the abuse has become extreme. There are many organizations that help women and children who are victims of domestic violence, but support is not sufficient.
