Domestic Violence in Same-Sex Partnerships in New York

By  

New York has recently passed into law a gay and lesbian marriage bill. This law indicates that New York is moving ahead in its understanding of the rights for people to live as they please.  Unfortunately, not everyone understands this right or believes it to be true, and education is the best way to combat these issues.

Every day, women face domestic abuse that keeps them terrified and locked in unhealthy relationships and marriages.  Women need to gain education about their rights and about the many organizations that can help them to break free from an unhealthy domestic situation.

Similarly, those who have chosen to live in gay, lesbian and bisexual relationships can gain education and insight from the many organizations that are there to help them. The more education that people receive and the more they are offered alternatives to their current lifestyles, the more they will form healthy relationships that can benefit them and society.
