Commit your work to the Lord,and your plans will be established.Proverbs 16:3
Coercive Control involves the use of abusive behaviors to gain and maintain power and control over an intimate partner. It is a criminal offence in France, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland for someone to subject you to Coercive Control but not in America. Although it is considered Domestic Violence, offenders often go unreported and unpunished. In my case, my husband (a dentist) frightened and controlled me with his erratic behavior and crazy ramblings. If he didn't get what he wanted, he'd flip out, smash things and threaten to kill himself or others. I truly thought him to be mentally unstable and begged him to get counseling throughout our 8 1/2 year marriage. When he finally left, I thought that I could have peace, again, in my life. Instead, he defamed my name and hid hundreds of thousands in marital assets then insisted on joint custody of our son and went after the equity in my premarital home. This is after he depleted my life savings and made me support him for many years throughout his bankruptcy. He treated our son like a nuisance and a burden and denied his paternity up until our divorce proceedings began. Even though my audio recordings, photographs and documents proved his emotional and financial abuse, the authorities ignored me. Due to the incompetent and/or corrupt family court attorneys and judges of Atlantic County New Jersey, I am forever bound to my abuser and in deep financial debt. My work now is to enact laws, here, that will prevent abusers like mine and their enablers from hurting others and, in most cases, hindering them from ever enjoying a normal life again.Please visit my website www.StopCoerciveControl.com and read my story To BELIEVE ALL WOMEN is a ludicrous idea but how about believing the preponderance of evidence?
