  • So many things can be considered abuse. Throwing something in your partners direction intentionally, calling a name, so I don't know what you're referring to but everyone's own actions are their own fault.

  • I guess unless it can be considered self defense.

  • I don't understand this question. Are you talking about verbal abuse? Could you be more specific please.

  • everyone is responsible for their own actions, including how they react to someone else.

  • Yelling back isn't justification for hitting, if that is what you mean. Whose fault it is is no excuse for making it physical either. If there is verbal abuse going back and forth then marriage counseling would probably help to keep things from escalating. Best of luck.

  • I don't fully understand the question, but I think that if you have to question whether or not it's domestic abuse, then I think that there's a pretty good chance it is.

  • well... doesn't an abuser pretty much always blame the victim? you didn't really provide enough detail to understand.

  • If that's all there is I can't see it as D.A.

  • I don't see how yelling back and being told it is all her fault is abuse. I really don't get your question, could you please be more specific?
