It is also  emotional, sexual abuse, psychological, economical, mental and verbal.   It  affects  people from any race, gender,  economic status,  sexual orientation, education. age or religion. Victims can be married or dating.  The behaviors  of an abuser    include:  physical harm, threats, arouse fear, intimidation, isolation from friends and family and depriving  of financial assistance.
