Their experiences of psychological abuse followed a specific pattern and cycle of destruction which included verbal attacks, monitored family and social activities, control of money, sexual dominance, abusive attitude such as tone of voice and facial gestures to name a few. The main conclusions of the study were that these women endured invisible wounds, the psychologically abusive relationship was mostly kept hidden from others, the abuse was continuous and escalated, all the marriages ended in divorce, and that society in general tolerates psychological abuse.
