After the relationship becomes more serious mostly after marriages, the abuse may get worse, such as:

The abuser may begin making threats, calling the other person names, and slamming doors or breaking more dishes. This is a form of emotional abuse that is sometimes used to make the person feel bad or weak.

Physical abuse that starts with a slap might lead to kicking, shoving, and choking over time.

As a way to control the person, the abuser may make violent threats against the person’s children, other family members, or pets and also insult the other person’s parents and relations.

Abusers may also control or stop giving money to make the person feel weak and dependent. This is called financial abuse.

Domestic violence also includes sexual abuse, such as forcing a person to have sex against her will.
