Americans need to become more aware of how their partner is treating them, and how they are treating their partner. “Love” can cause someone to stay in a toxic relationship; as a result, many tend to remember the good times they had with their partner, and try to forget the bad memories. If you have to question whether or not you are experiencing control problems within your relationship, more than likely you are suffering from relationship abuse. Abuse is a serious matter in which Americans as a people need to stand up and fight for the victims. The statistics are at an overwhelming high, and could be lowered if people were more educated about the signs of abuse.
Some of the abuser will say sorry after abusing, and most of victims are kind, so they will forgive the abuser, which makes the domestic violence happen over and over again. Secondly, Fear of losing custody of any children if they leave or divorce their abuser or fear abuser will hurt or even kill their children. This situation sometimes comes up with lacking of financial supporting, so they have to stay in that terrible place. Last but least, lacking of supporting from friends and family. They have no idea where to go, no friends or family to help, shelter programs are full or limited by length of stay.

Leaving a relationship is never an easy task because all of your hard work and dedication will be thrown down the drain, and another reason why is because most are afraid of starting over with someone new. In conclusion, I gathered in my research that most women that are being abused generally stay with their abuser because of economic needs as a result of having limited resources such as educational, financial and employment. Many people are blind to the fact that domestic violence is a serious issue impacting women relationships. I think part of the reason why they hold on to something so tight is because we fear something so great won’t happen twice.
In our complex society there are marriages and relationships that succeed and comparably many that do not. Unfortunately, many small conflicts within people do not resolve easily and lead up to divorces and/or break ups. It is unfair to say that particular sex is responsible for all the causes the difficulties in relationships. Therefore, both sides should be analyzed closely to find the flaws within the relationships. Most men think that their girlfriends or wives are the main problem makers, and strongly oppose the fact that they are the problem too.
Support for this argument will be drawn from the following sources: Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, Love, Sex, and Health, and The Question of Pornography. First of all trust is one of the biggest factors when it comes to being in a relationship. It there is no trust it could all easily fall apart. This is why so many women loose their husbands trust when they first discover that they have been cheating on them with pornography magazines, books, and more often internet sites. Pamela Paul states that “most men do not admit to engaging in pornography but try to hide it from their spouse in order to keep it a secret.
In order to make the marriage work both have to put commitment. Too much arguing is a key factor to why a lot of marriages end. When married some couples tend to get bored of each other. What I mean by that is that they get tired of having sex with the same person over and over again which affects their relationship. This issue can then lead to someone in the relationship cheating on the
However, the definition of the term discipline is differently interpreted by parents. Children will misbehave and teaching the difference between right and wrong and not resulting to forms of abuse .Some go to extreme measures to discipline a child, thus creating deep physiological problems. Child abuse needs to be prevented and the government should intrude to insure the safety of the children and of future generations. Caused by different things, abuse comes in many forms and can be preventable. Verbal and emotion abuse often coincide with physical abuse and neglect.
Some studies showed a positive correlation between the violent threats towards victims and their decision not to pursue charges or any other mediation (Artz, 2011). In other words, threatened violence by the offender directed towards the victim was a reason behind the victim failing to cooperate. Artz (2011) further notes studies performed in the 1990’s showed women may not follow through with the process due to the criminal justice process itself. The process is very time consuming and with multiple court dates, taking off work and finding adequate childcare can create issues (Artz, 2011, p. 8). These studies also found the problems that can occur with the service of protection orders, misunderstanding of the criminal justice system itself, and once again, being afraid of the offender, will serve as a determining factor in a victims’ willingness to cooperate with further court proceedings.

The emotion of jealousy can change and destroy one to their roots where their good and truth disappears from their soul and only the anger, jealousy, and hatred remain.

In essence, men who are victims of spousal abuse should be entitled to the same amount of stability and support women in the same situation receive. Regardless of the stereo-types society hold dear, men who experience abuse within their marriages are in just as much danger as anyone else that has been abused and should not feel any less of a man because of this. Although, most of the focus goes to abused women, it is important that people take action and bring awareness to battered men. It is also important that men in abusive situations find the courage to speak up about their experiences without feeling overruled, or having society judge them.
