Spousal Abuse

When physical abuse or rape is perpetrated on one spouse by another it is termed spousal abuse.  It is the most common type of domestic violence and usually involves the man assaulting his wife.

In many cases women are afraid to report spousal abuse.  They may be afraid of threats of further harm if they report an incident to police or they may be afraid of public ridicule.  Others simply believe that is the way of marriage and are the rights of their husband.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Spousal abuse in some other countries is not only permitted but encouraged.  Some cultures treat women and wives as little more than personal property of the father or husband.  Thankfully, that is not the case in the United States.

Spousal abuse is treated as a serious crime in the U.S. and abusers can face stiff prison sentences for assault on their wife.  Many half-way homes exist all over the U.S. where battered wives can seek refuge and safety from an abusive spouse.
