Yes it was violent
In your opinion
Is there a real risk that the abuser will "do something stupid" if the victim does not submit to his wishes?
Nearly 76% of the participants stated that their partner had made "veiled" threats, in other words, threats to "do something that would have consequences" without specifying exactly what "something" is. Making a threat that they will "do something stupid" as in this conversation, or saying something like "you don't know what I'm capable of doing" are thus very common threats. Such threats are very effective because victims are left to imagine the worst scenario.
