Battery: Is It Safer To Leave or Stay?
Over twenty percent of all battered women kill their partners. Making the decision to leave any abusive relationship is a process where many factors have to be considered. Domestic abuse affects people of all cultures, religions, ages, sexual orientations, educational background, and income levels. Victims are frequently blamed for being victims.
Domestic violence continues because of isolation, silence, and the failure to seek help. In a lot of situations, the victim feels like they are crazy or that they are the only one that this has happened to. Therefore, they except the abuse as a way of life. Some people blame the victim because they don't attempt to try to make changes like leaving or getting help. Seventy three percent of women who are injured by their partner, are injured after separation.
CASA is an organization designed to work with all individuals in need of domestic violence services, regardless of reason. CASA has developed an Internet web page to help people understand more about domestic violence. They have put together thirteen condensed signs of abuse.

Availability of weapons or the threat of their use increases the risk of homicide and sometimes suicide. (10) Your intimate partner destroys things or harms your pets. (11) Your intimate partner calls you names and makes fun of your body and appearance. (12) Your intimate partner is extremely jealous and constantly accuses you of having affairs. In the beginning of a relationship, jealousy feels like love and concern. But, as time passes, this trait becomes entitlement and possession. (13) Your intimate partner slaps, shoves, kicks, hits, burns you, or threatens you with weapons. Substance abuse plays a big role in violence. The abuser uses substance abuse to excuse offensive and harmful behavior. Abusers may have a history of using violence to solve their problems.
