My in laws think that because they never saw bruises, it wasn't an abusing relationship

this article really struck a cord with me

Not for the faint hearted

Your in laws are dangerously uninformed and ignorant.
Abusers are very sneaky and often don't leave bruises. Also not all all abuse comes in the form of violence
. It could be. Emotional, financial, sexual mental..
I opened the article, but had to stop reading it.

My parents told me it couldn't have been that bad or I would have left sooner...
I hope you're ok?x

Your In laws are uneducated ignorant arse wipes. Excuse my french.

Did you take photographs of any bruising. If you did I would show them.

Worryingly they are not the only people with this outdated and ignorant view of domestic abuse.

Deste......there was no bruising

The abuse was emotional, sexual and financial

All stuff they didn't see
