During these harrowing times of social and economic turbulence, romantic relationships are often prone to issues of control and power plays between two partners. Perhaps one makes more money than the other, feels as though he or she does more around the house in terms of chores and duties or carries the emotional load of the relationship more than his or her partner. Otherwise resolvable problems such as these can be, in many cases, catalysts for a form of abuse that might not leave the victim with any visible cuts and bruises but is damaging and hurtful.
