Did you know that? There were 248,300 rapes/sexual assaults in the United States in 2007, more than 500 per day, up from 190,600 in 2005. Women were more likely than men to be victims; the rate for rape/sexual assault for persons age 12 or older in 2007 was 1.8 per 1,000 for females and 0.1 per 1,000 for males and On average more than three women a day are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the United States. In 2005, 1,181 women were murdered by an intimate partner?!
Those are just two facts that I gave as an example but there is so much more! I couldn’t believe how serious of a problem violence in a romantic relationships is. I knew that it happens all the time but not to the extent of someone being killed. There are a lot of cases out there to where it possibly kills an innocent individual.
