2 key pointers on divorcing an abusive spouse

Few life events are as emotionally draining as divorce. When one partner’s intentions become dark and threatening, they could end up blurring the lines between healthy aggression and physical and mental abuse. If you are going through the separation process and are receiving threats and or physical blows from your partner, it is important for you to take action to protect yourself and your children. Many children who witness one of their parents suffering abuse from the other develop behavioral issues and are more likely to become victims of abuse themselves in the future.
