I was extremely surprised to learn that in the US, women between the ages of 16 and 24
are three times as likely to be domestic violence victims as women of other age brackets
(Morgan, 2012). It is also surprising to learn that women and girls of the same are murdered
yearly by their aggressive and abusive spouses, boyfriends and husbands in the US (Morgan,
2012). Leslie Morgan is representative of victims or survivors because she has experienced
similar domestic abuse as other women in the United States. When she was 22 years, her
husband held a gun to her head many times threatening to kill her (Morgan, 2012). However, she
mentions the psychological trap disguised as the love that prevents most domestic violence
victims from taking action (Morgan, 2012). She is a typical representative of victims and
survivors of domestic violence. She is also a typical victim of the abuse she knew nothing about
domestic violence, its warning signs or even its patterns (Morgan, 2012).
Morgan should have realized that there was a problem the first time that her husband,
Conor attacked her physically. Morgan narrates that Conor attacked her physically five days
before their wedding. He tried to strangle her and also put her in a chokehold position (Morgan,
2012). I strongly believe that this is the time that Morgan should have ended the relationship.
Conor’s physical attack on her was clear evidence of an abusive husband and a very violent man
(Morgan, 2012). However, Morgan did not end the relationship because she thought that this was
an isolated incident and that the attack was due to the wedding stress. She also believed that
Conor loved her so much (Morgan, 2012). Unfortunately, this was only a psychological trap that
characterizes many domestic violence victims or relationships.
If a loved one told me that someone had hit them, I would tell them to end the
relationship. In domestic violence cases, the abuse starts with a physical or verbal attack that
appears as an isolated incident. However, serious abuse physical and verbal abuse develops
