5. I've known two women who have been abused by their domestic partners...
One I've known before and after and one after.
The thing that always amazed me was that either of those women ever were victims at all. Both were strong, assertive women with self confidence and supportive familes. (Perhaps that is what allowed them to survive and get free from their abusers.) But those two women made me understand that anyone can become a victim of abuse.
