DV is but one more form of abuse that may be increasing partly because few understand it as abusive. One bright spotlight on the shidduch crisis is reflected in a well-publicized incident in which a renowned psychologist was invited to take part in a task force on sexual abuse in the Orthodox community.

As a child Hannah recalled the abuse as confusing and painful but in some ways, forgettable, just like so many other confusing childhood events. ” The memories of abuse were always there but became significantly more intense as Hannah entered her thirties.
