Family violence between a couple in Canada
Many disputes of family violence between a couple occur around a situation of control or attempted fear situations. Family violence can also be known as domestic violence, partner abuse, or relationship abuse.
It is common for a couple to go through complicated situations during the relationship or even after the relationship ends. A relationship requires a lot of decision making that must be shared between couples. Often, when these decisions are not shared, some people try to resolve situations with family violence.
In addition to control and frightening situations, family violence also includes financial and emotional abuse against the partner. It can also include threats to hurt children, other family members, pets, and property.
