In the past, domesticviolence was thought to be limited to only individuals who were married or were to be considered the “American relationship” but as time went on, the meaning of domesticviolence has changed. Today, it includes the traditional married couple of man and woman, but also includes non-married couples who are of the same sex or live with one another.

In other words, batterers condition women into believing that they are powerless to escape by subjecting them to a continuing pattern of uncontrollableVIEW DOCUMENT

Personally, I cringe at the thought of women being treated this way. It is sickening to know that so many men are laying their hands on a woman. It makes one wonder what kind of life style those men were raised in. Was their mother beaten or abused? Was their mother even in their life? Were the men taught that abusing women was okay? No matter what the past has done to or taught those men, abusing and beating women will never be acceptable.
