“Among married people who had gotten divorced, people said the following:

  • “I want a traditional marriage, but she sees it as controlling.”
  • “I used to be a very happy, optimistic person, and it was like he was slowly starving my soul. I didn’t like the way he treated me, and finally realized that he was abusive. I didn’t know that such a thing existed until I researched it. Once I realized [what] was going on was abuse, I started the proceedings for a divorce.”
