Domestic Violence does not only mean physical abuse, but it also includes sexual abuse, psychological abuse, emotional and financial/economic abuse. No one deserves to be subjected to such victimisation in any kind of relationship. If you’re experiencing any form of this, then you need to separate.
God does not sanction abuse. Staying and praying in an abusive marriage is foolishness. Your children are watching, and your life is at stake. Submission is not Subjugation and Submission is not slavery. Don’t be deceived when they tell you that God hates divorce, they forget to tell you that God does not hate the divorcee. God does not hate you; God loves you.
It is better being divorced than to stay in a traumatic and abusive relationship that then leads to your Death. Women and Men in Violent relationships, I beg you to LEAVE so that you can LIVE. It’s better to walk out alive and sane than to lose your mind or die in an abusive marriage.
Divorce is not the end. There is hope after divorce and there is hope as a single mom. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, please speak up. You are not alone!
