Abstract: My experience with domestic violence is limited to a few cases that I have handled in my long years of practice as a mental health professional. But the limited exposure by itself left me wondering and pondering to seek answers to certain questions that raised within me as a result of certain similar traits in all the cases. What was a commonly striking factor was the refusal to quit the relationship by the victims and in a few cases by the abuser too. This paper is a theoretical analysis as to understand the cause for victims to stay in an abusive relationship. My experience showed lot of studies being conducted to study the economically weaker women victims whereas my concern relates to the educated, financially independent victim. More studies may be recommended to understand the predicaments of the educated class of victims and another objective of this paper is to promote psycho social intervention as an important factor of providing assistance to these victims.
