Abuse at home can be caused on the individual level. A previous history of abuse, substance abuse, trauma, and financial stress are possible factors that contribute to a person’s susceptibility to initiating domestic violence. Another cause of domestic violence lies in a lack of community resources and outreach. When people feel isolated and lack a sense of belonging or support from the community, the burden of their stress weighs heavier on their shoulders; consequently, this contributes to their lashing out on family members through violent ways. If the community offers services and resources to help individuals cope with their unique stressors and situations, incidences of domestic violence would decrease.
“Economic abuse involves controlling a woman 's ability to acquire, use, and maintain economic resources, thus threatening her economic security and potential for self-sufficiency (Adams, Sullivan, Bybee, & Greeson, 2008) (1). Women who experience server aggression by men (i.e., not being allowed to go to work or school, or having their lives or their children’s lives threatened) are more likely to have been unemployed in the past, have health problems, and are receiving public assistance. While statistics show a high rate of women who suffer from this type of abuse, men are also at risk of being victimized. A study in Australia “revealed that 15.7 per cent of women and 7.1 per cent of men had experienced economic abuse in their lifetimes (2).” Considering that men are less likely to report abuse to officials this number could be ten times higher. Economic abuse is a tactic used to undermine the intelligence of the victim and to create a façade of superior and dominant behavior.
Interventions and assessments do not always persuade victims who are emotionally involved. This study did not talk about the emotional connection these women have with their abusers.

In past articles, we have discussed how socioeconomic status and educational properties play a role in how a person may carry out their life. In this article, educated women were more likely to leave an abuser than a lesser educated woman.
As an act per se it declares incapability to function within the domestic environment and broken thought process. However, it is undeniable that the recipients and the witnesses, be it adults or children, are the ones who suffer the most.

Society’s current version of hypermasculinity has proven to be violent, ruin relationships, and cause mental problems. We must work to change this into something that is much better for men and women alike. If we do not, the confines of masculinity will close in even more, seeming like a highly exclusive club where many more people are left out than let in. If it does continue, masculinity will continue to promote risky behaviors, including stunts for attention and violent reactions to a lack of masculinity; these behaviors, however, will be more startling due to the fact society may have adapted to what used to be horrifying. To allow this problem to snowball out of control would be a shame to society since we are well aware of the problem, and we can no longer allow more mass killings to take place that could potentially put Pearl High and Colombine Elementary to shame.
