I thought about telling you what I think should happen to a man that abuses a woman, but then I figured the images that it would conjure are too graphic to put on this site. Suffice it to say that I think they should be dealt with swiftly and severely.
There are several different types of abuse. Physical, sexual violence/abuse, psychological and economic. Many times, multiple forms will manifest themselves in an abusive relationship. Women sometimes stay in these situations way too long. You DO have a choice.
