Hi and thanks for contacting Just Answer.
Please let me know what your question is regarding marriage abuse. Also, each state has different laws regarding "domestic violence" which is the typical term used to describe abuse that occurs in the marriage, so if you can give me your state, I'd be glad to research that as it relates to your question.
Thank you and I will look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for the information.
Here is the site to Maryland Legal Aid, which has the contact information you will need.
