What traits do abusers have in common?

Domestic abusers in Florida can be hard to recognize. They tend to behave much better in public and around casual acquaintances. People outside the relationship often find them to be nice, pleasant or charming. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, only 10% of people who commit domestic violence have criminal records, and most only pose a threat to their intimate partners. Even if you are the one experiencing the abuse, it can be difficult to recognize a partner's behavior for what it is. This is because there is a psychological component to the abuse that causes you to doubt the evidence of your senses. 

The link between gray divorce and poverty

If you are like most people in Florida and around the United States who are approaching a divorce, you may well be a bit fearful about how you will be able to provide for yourself once your marriage has ended. This is a reasonable concern given that most spouses end up having to share some or all of their assets with their former partner. At the same time, people have to establish single residences which can cost more than sharing a home with another person.

Domestic dispute ends with actress' arrest

It is not uncommon to learn that underneath the facade of a supposedly happy marriage in Sarasota lies the grim reality of domestic violence. Many often question why those who are experiencing domestic violence at the hands of their spouses do not simply seek a divorce. The fact is that such victims may indeed want to leave, yet they fear that if they do, the violence being perpetrated against them will escalate (or extend to their children or other family members). Domestic abuse victims need to know that there are resources in place to help them escape from a violent marriage.
