    VIOLENCE

    Of all married couples, 30% have at least one violent episode during their marriage. Each year some 1.8 million wives are severely attacked by their husbands, and almost the same number of husbands are assaulted by their wives. In 1975 it was estimated that nearly 2 million individuals faced a mate wielding a gun or knife. Nearly 2 million children a year (almost 4% of all children between the ages of 3 and 17) are victims of parental abuse and neglect. More than 2,000 die as a result. According to national averages, every household in America is the scene of family violence at least once a year.

    A recent survey on marital violence reorts that approximately one in every seven American couples has used some form of physical abuse during an argument within the past year.
