The incidence and causes of wife abuse can be attributed to four main causes as well as several other contributers. The first major cause of domestic violence is the economic condition of the family involved. Typically lower income families have a much greater chance of abuse than families with in a higher socioeconomic class. Economic conditions play right into the next cause of domestic violence which is race and ethnicities. Some races are more likely to be involved in domestic violence than others, a lot of the time they also experience economic difficulties which influence these situations. Another cause of domestic violence is verbal aggression. Couples that engage in verbal aguments often are highly likely to progress towards physical abuse. The last major cause of spousal abuse is alcohol. People that abuse alcohol have a tendency to abuse their spouse. All of these causes together create situations that elevate tensions in households and domestic violence is usually the outcome.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
