Intimate Partner and Domestic Violence can take many forms including physical, verbal, and sexual abuse. Although most assaults are made against women, others, including men, teenagers and same-sex couples can be victims of intimate partner violence.

A majority of relationships are not abusive. However, on-going abuse occurs in approximately one-third of relationships regardless of sexual orientation, ethnicity, or class.
