In Germany extensive reseach has proven that at least every fourth woman has experienced violence in her relationship. Women are humiliated, shown up, jealously monitored, slapped, hit, battered, strangled, raped....

Then explanations follow such as: ‘You provoked me’, ‘I had a bad day’, ‘The alcohol was to blame’ ....

Then perhaps regret may follow: ‘I`ll never do it again’ ....

Many women begin to excuse the behaviour of their abuser and hope that this time was the last time. The fear remains and some women live in the hope over many years that one day he`ll only show his good side  – but more often than not, he turns violent again (and again).
