DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN MARRIAGE: Pain Many Choose To Endure. | The African Exponent.

Many women and men across Uganda, including those who have attained higher education from prestigious and reputable education institutions, suffer from domestic violence in their marriages. While this comes as a shock, statistics show that out of 10 (ten) people, at least7(seven) of them suffer a form of domestic violence every day. Out of these numbers, at least 3(three) out of 7 (seven) victims are aware that they can seek help from the legal system, NGOs, or a friend. However, these victims choose to suffer in silence till they probably cannot keep up with the abuse and either opt for divorce or murder in the worst-case scenario. Others do not opt for any of the alternatives mentioned earlier but choose to live and die sad, depressed, and frustrated for the rest of their lives.
