dc.description Spouse abuse or marital violence is frequently cited as grounds for divorce. Physical abuse refers to kicking, punching, hitting with a closed fist, hitting with an object, threatening with a weapon and/or the use of a knife or a gun. Not included in this definition are pushing, shoving or grabbing. This definition does not include psychological abuse, although it often accompanies physical abuse. Such psychological abuse is a better predictor of depression in the victimized spouse, than is physical abuse.
