Domestic violence is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. It includes physical harm, emotional and verbal abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse, or any use of power and control.
You should never be afraid of an intimate partner, and they should never prevent you from doing what you wish, or force you to behave in a way you do not want. Despite domestic violence affecting millions of individuals each year, it is never normal, and never okay.
