Domestic Violence and Abuse
Now here is a pretty interesting statistic supported by several websites. About forty percent of all incidents of Domestic Violence and Abuse involve violence by women against men. That translates into between three hundred thousand and four hundred thousand cases each year where the man is the victim. Few men report incidents of Domestic Violence however. The triggers of women abusing their husbands or boyfriends are typically alcohol abuse, psychological disorders or unrealistic expectations, assumptions and conclusions.
