What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence can be explained as negative behavior such as violence or threatening violence, causing fear, and intimidation used to gain power and control over a person with whom someone is on intimate terms. In other words, if someone you are living with threatens you, intimidates you, hurts you, or makes you feel afraid that he/she will, then you are experiencing domestic violence.
