"What is domestic violence?
Domestic violence is the abuse of one partner within an intimate or family relationship. It is the repeated, random and habitual use of intimidation to control a partner. The abuse can be physical, emotional, psychological, financial or sexual.
If you are forced to alter your behaviour because you are frightened of your partner’s reaction, you are being abused."
