Sexual Abuse

Marital Rape:  Is it Even a Possibility in Christian Marriage? This post at Spiritual Sounding Board exposes and rebuts the wicked thinking of a man who claims that marital rape cannot happen in a Christian marriage because the wife gave permanent consent to sexual intercourse with her husband when she took her marriage vows.

1) Mr. Number — free app for Android devices.  This app blocks calls and texts.
2) Spyware apps used to monitor partners.  This article explains how the use of spyware apps by abusers to monitor partners is reaching ‘epidemic proportions’.
