I was married for 34 years and was under constant mental abuse and intermittent physical abuse. I had three children and no family support network, so I tried to just live the best I could and to not trigger anything in my spouse that would cause physical abuse. Even then, I received a black eye, a broken arm that had to be repaired with a titanium rod and an upper lip that was split and had to be stitched back together. I am divorced now. All of my children are adults. No one deserves to...

I was married for 34 years and was under constant mental abuse and intermittent physical abuse. I had three children and no family support network, so I tried to just live the best I could and to not trigger anything in my spouse that would cause physical abuse. Even then, I received a black eye, a broken arm that had to be repaired with a titanium rod and an upper lip that was split and had to be stitched back together. I am divorced now. All of my children are adults. No one deserves to live in fear and to live with the feeling that you are walking on egg shells trying not to provoke your spouse. I know there are a lot of women out there who are living the way I lived for 34 years and my heart goes out to all of them.

I know how that is. I went through a lot of mental and emotional abuse with my soon to be ex husband. I left before the physical part of it got too bad. Been with him for 4 years and really hoping the divorce will be counsel on Wednesday which is my next court date. Your son warned me to run when i first told him about him.

Zach was very insightful and intelligent. When my husband hit me in Florida and split my upper lip and I had to have it stitched back together, he told me that if I let his dad come back that he would leave and I would not see him as long as his dad was around. So, I chose Zach and it was the best decision I ever made. Even though we struggled financially, at least we had peace of mind. It is sad that Zach is gone because he had the wisdom to help so many people. His body was just not able to do what his brain wanted to do.

Karla, it took great strength, faith and hope on your part to make the right choice. I admire you for it, and I hope that you will rejoice in your new home.

Men need to be punished for their abuse either sexually, physically, or even mental abuse.

As a gang-rape survivor this is a particularly close to the heart cause for me; I have also suffered from physical abuse from the many men my mother brought home as "new" daddies. It is time men realize the women and children are not their personal "sex" objects or punching bags! The women and men in this country must stand up to these abusers and bullies and take a stand. It is long overdue to stand up and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! NO MORE! THIS ENDS NOW!

I have been a survivor of rape..abuse..as well as watching my loved ones suffer from abuse at the hands of another. I've seen this sickness pass from generation to generation and it needs to stop.

Rape is a form of death. A rapist is killing and sacrificing a human being because the rapist is a narcissistic pig and is a purely selfish evil thing.

I was sexually abused by 5 family members...not my dad or brother;I want to make this clear! I also fought off a date who tried to rape me! I was told by my cousins that their father raped me when I was a young child. But, since I don't remember the incident I am not going to state that I was actually raped! I know personally that any form of sexual abuse can destroy a women's entire life! I've recovered in some ways but, in other ways I still suffer! I'll be 52 yrs. old in January! I'VE...

As a woman , I feel this cause is important and it can help to prevent women abuse to some extent , if taken seriously.I request people to join the cause with a determination to stop abuse and not just for name sake.

It is our responsibility to support women against getting these types of abuse.

Women are very important part of this world. A person who is sensible will understand the proper meaning. It just needs a kind heart and mind to become a well cultured personality. We should always support and act in good things [work].
