or ex-partner attempts to physically
or psychologically dominate or harm
the other.

"intimate partner violence" (IPV)

"husband battering",
"relationship violence",
"domestic abuse",
"spousal abuse",

Recent attention to domestic violence
began in the women's movement as concern
about wives being beaten by their husbands,

BULLYING




Domestic violence comes as a form of
bullying, as a means to an end that
is easier than other means.

The heading on the UK National Website
for Bullying in the Family states that;


'Those Who Can, Do.
Those Who Can't Bully.'


It seems reasonable to add that those
who won't prefer violence, too.
