“People always wonder why people stay in abusive relationships,” said Sheryl Christianson, senior programs manager of My Sisters' Place, a Catholic Charities domestic violence shelter. “When we start the conversation with ‘why do they stay,’ we place additional burden on the victim. We need to wonder why do people abuse, and what can be done to hold them accountable.”

Physical abuse includes hitting, slapping and shoving, biting or other physical harm. Domestic violence is not limited to physical abuse but can also include sexual abuse, emotional abuse or financial abuse.
