The tern domestic violence is most commonly used to touch on the violence done within a married relationship, in which one partner, usually male or his family, uses a pattern of assault and intimidating acts to impose power and control over the other partner, typically female. As mentioned, generally, such kind of violence targets the victimization of women. Out of this, most women face this as a general household problem and choose to keep quiet for family reputation. You have felt serious alarm or distress and it has had a substantial effect on your usual day to day activities. The behaviour has had a substantial effect on you if it has caused you to change the way you live. For example, you may have changed the way you socialise, your physical or mental health may have deteriorated, you may have changed the way you do household chores or how you care for your children. If you have changed the way you live in order to keep you or your children safe from harm, it is possible that the behaviour you are experiencing is coercive control.
