One common factor I have observed in following domestic violence news is that there are always threats and enough warning signs which are ignored in most cases. The threatened spouse/partner never new that it could get to the point of “no return” (death).
So I ask:
When and how serious should you take a death or violence threat coming from your spouse/partner?
