(CJ416) Week5 Assignment: Victim Defending and Victim Blaming Domestic violence and other similarly relatable relationship qualms/symptoms indicative of an insensible and abusive union is not a portent that is discriminatory against any one particular type of relationship; “Partners may be married or not married; heterosexual, gay, or lesbian; living together, separated or dating.” Appreciative that the very definition of domestic violence is one that encompasses both physical and emotional abuse by a spouse or significant other, it still considerably begs the question of why it would be so hard for a domestic violence victim to just leave and find another significant other that appreciates, respects, and treats them with the love and care they deserve to

    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.
