Theresa Moretimer's insight:

This was the most ridiculous article I have ever read. Marriage does NOT prevent domestic violence and neither does having a father in the picture. I should know...I was a victim. I WAS married and my DAD lives with my mom. They have been married for 53 years....So sorry Washington Post, you better come up with a new angle.

Domestic Violence Warnings

Domestic violence cases are on the rise and a shooting last week shows how dangerous abusive relationships can be. Women's shelter directors say women need t...
Theresa Moretimer's insight:

Domestic violence can turn deadly. I lived it at the hands of my now ex husband and my nightmare as of yet, is still not over.  I wrote the TO HIDE from DEATH series based on my own life, only fictionalized. It is a compelling novel of a woman's story that survived domestic violence only to find it wasn't over. There are ways to prevent it. There are warning signs. To prevent DV you must heed the warning signs. A partner that tries to change you, wants you to no longer be around your friends. A partner that tells you you only need them, they do not like your friends. They shove you and tell you they're sorry, then make up for it with passion. They say it won't happen again, and it won't if you leave. If you stay, it most certainly will!
