Moral violence in the family - This is an effective psychological impact to establish power over your partner. For outsiders, it is often intangible and imperceptible. Moral violence causes the same harm as physical and, often, it is accompanied by threats of intimate or physical violence. During life, people maintain different relationships with others. There is a certain type of destructive (destructive) relationships in which an individual falls after meeting a person (psychopath, emotional vampire, perverted narcissist) and becomes a victim of moral violence. Anyone can be such a victim.
The moral violence of a woman is an international phenomenon, which is present in all families, regardless of their financial situation. Psychologists divide domestic violence into moral (psychological), intimate and physical. At the beginning of a relationship, latent moral violence often occurs and at a certain point it develops into compulsion in intimate or physical violence.
The cause of moral violence in a woman’s family lies in the psychological weakness or violation of the man’s psyche, his low self-esteem, inability to keep a partner with literate verbal influence, in the absence of male confidence in the value of the union, in the pursuit of power. The partner achieves this power by means of psychological pressure, as he fears that he will not be able to do otherwise. Often, such pressure is carried out in the following ways: the husband limits his wife’s rights, establishes his own rules, makes unfounded claims, and arranges social terror. This is when a partner or spouse isolates a victim from communicating with her relatives, acquaintances, friends, prohibits working outside the house, threatens to harm her loved ones or things in case of disobedience.
This type of violence is often accompanied by economic constraints. This is especially evident in marriages with foreign wives, who are least protected economically, so it is easier to manipulate them. It affects a woman’s ignorance of the law, the language, as well as the psychological shock that arises after getting into a new cultural environment. In this category of violence include any actions of a partner or husband, aimed at the economic restriction of the independence of women. If the wife is engaged in housekeeping, the man tries to control strictly the expenditure of the family budget, and sometimes even refuses to allocate funds for her personal needs.
