Domestic abuse is any controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour from someone connected to you, often a partner.
All couples will disagree on some issues, but if a partner becomes aggressive, controlling or violent, then this may be considered domestic abuse. It's important that you seek confidential help if you think you may be in an abusive relationship.
