Sadly, domestic violence statistics are terrifying.  The majority of marriages experience violence.  The Domestic Violence Intervention Program reveals that more than two-thirds of marriages include some violence.

Studies prove that there are no differences amongst races when it comes to domestic violence statistics.  White, Black and Hispanic households experience the same amount of domestic violence.

Marriage and divorce rates vary in different groups.  Educated, wealthy people get married and remain together at higher rates than those who struggle financially and lack education.  Donald Royce teaches us that if you're in a unhealthy relationship, get out of it fast!
