Every marriage has its ups and downs; however, increasing conflict may trigger strong negative feelings, which could begin to corrode the relationship. Those negative emotions may manifest themselves in a variety of ways. Ultimately, all the frustration and aggression may result in domestic violence.
Domestic violence is not limited to one partner physical abusing the other. In reality, there are various kinds of domestic violence, and each of them has its own overwhelming consequences, which could include the issuance of a Domestic Violence Restraining Order. (See Family Code section 6320).
