FAQ Highlight — What about sexual abuse in marriage?
The topic of sexual abuse is very hard for victims to raise when speaking to counselors or supportive friends. It’s hard to bring up, but once it has been raised, it’s easier to talk about.
Domestic abuse researchers have found that victims are often glad when a counselor or support person brings up the subject of sexual abuse. A gentle way a support person could bring up the subject would be by asking something like, “Have you been pressured or coerced into sexual things which you didn’t want?” Or, “Has your spouse ever sexually abused you?”
We have compiled over a dozen posts that address different aspects of sexual abuse, both before and in marriage.
