    im coming

    i don’t have a specific story, but
    if this gives the courage to someone to speak up and not worry about being blamed or not believed, that’s a good enough reason for me.
    and.. after all.. knowledge is power .. and this does exist, so why not know if its coming my way.

    this type of event should be encouraged, because we, as a community, have blood on our hands, and shoulder the responsibility, for even one person who is suffering abuse and we do nothing, but just sit by idly. One the other hand, one needs to ensure that it is to help those who need help, and not to break up a marriage, that is not abusive, but where both parties can pick up on better social skills. G-d forbid to break up even one marriage that can be saved! Also in today’s world of feminism, one needs to to take… Read more »

    While this event is beneficial for our community, I am curious to know whether the organizers believe that the possibilities of domestic abuse can be committed by either spouse and if that will be discussed. Domestic abuse is no myth…but please advocate that both spouses can perpetrators.

    Coming to this event only shows that you are a caring person who wants to better understand the facts so that you will know how to help others who are in this terrible predicament.

    I am a man who was abused. Nobody believed me. I didn’t even believe it. Until it got so bad I had to leave.

    Domestic abusers can be both men or women. Victims can be both men or women. This event is for women who want to be educated about how to helpful to someone who might be in an abusive marriage – man or woman. What is abuse. What to say and not to say. How to offer help and how not to. Of course it can also be helpful to someone who is in such a relationship r”l.

    not always the man

    not always the man

    most people automatically think of men when they hear “domestic abuse”. unfortunately, i come from a home where the woman- the wife and mother is the abusive one but no one understands. if we complained about my mother as children people told us we’re spoiled, ungrateful, and immature. please discuss at the seminar and make sure people are looking out for female abusers too

    The term "abuse" needs to be defined

    The term "abuse" needs to be defined

    From the comments, it seems that many people use the term “abuse”, each with their own definitions of abuse. Not every bad marriage is an abusive marriage. Abuse, by definition means that one partner wields all the control, and the other is not allowed any control in the relationship. This type of situation is much more serious than two people who have poor interpersonal skills, or just plain bad character traits which make a spouse miserable. Tonight’s awareness event can help people understand the difference between a bad marriage, which can be worked on, and an abusive marriage.
