More details
Discussion of coercion, control and financial abuse in marriage and dissolutions. 

A growing body of research casts doubt on the traditional economic view of marriage. More and more, scholars are beginning to see marriage as a “cooperative conflict” rather than the traditional united home front. Over the years the presenter has observed many troubling aspects of the condition of marriage including domestic violence in all forms. Perhaps the most disturbing domestic violence observed has been the exercise of coercive control through the use and treatment of money. Financial abuse often precedes emotional, verbal and ultimately physical abuse. It happens within all age ranges, educational levels, ethnic backgrounds, and financial levels.
