A couple is at home. They begin to talk, then to argue and finally resort to physical aggression. Lidia and Gonzalo decided to get married after a two-year betrothal. Despite ups and downs, they had children and shared frustrations and happy moments. She initially believed her husband when he told her: “It will not happen again”. As physical violence continued, she often experienced fear, had to move to her sister’s and threatened him to get divorced. Under these conditions, conflicts can arise any time, Lidia told WNS. Violence provides “some relief” to contradictions over marriage, experts indicated.
