It occurs when the abuser believes that abuse is acceptable, justified, or unlikely to be reported. It produces a generational cycle of abuse in children and other family members. They may feel that such violence is acceptable or condoned. Awareness, perception, definition, and documentation of domestic violence differs widely from country to country. As a result of abuse, victims may experience physical disabilities, chronic health problems, mental illness, limited finances, and poor ability. Victims may experience psychological problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. This is our society. So by awareness, we can clear out domestic violence from our society as the government has also made some laws against this. The laws should also get strengthened and mentality of people should also get to change otherwise, our society could be in great danger. There should be no conflicts. Both Men and Women should live peacefully.
