It seems to me that a lot of the news articles deal with extreme circumstances...murder-suicide of a child by a parent in a divorce case, for example.

Do we have anything to help a poster who might be in a dangerous situation, but not yet recognize that, or feel strong enough to take protective action?

Most of us aren't in any physical danger. Most posters get enough cautions thrown at them to be empowered to counteract garden variety WS crazy.

But could we do more to protect the outliers? I don't know, just throwing it out there.

There are laws in place that make it very easy for a battered partner to get a restraining order, unfortunately those very laws can be used as a tool in a divorce case to knock an innocent soon to be exspouse right on their A$$- as someone who has been on the receiving end of such an order I can tell you it's not a nice place to be.

Anyway- lots of help out there for abused relationship partners, the problem is many of them are afraid to utilize those widely available tools- they ironically think that if they call for help they'll anger the person they most fear and they'll be in even worse shape.

It's a viscous cycle for the abused. Usually no one can break them from it unless and until they find the strength to do it themselves.
