    Limey laws, interpersonal relationships

    10 signs of coercive control within a relationship

    https://www.theargus.co.uk/news/1814...-relationship/

    CHANGES to the law have finally made psychological abuse within a relationship illegal.

    The offence of coercive control now recognises that domestic abuse can take several forms and is not strictly limited to physical violence.

    The changes outlaw a number of things that were not previously covered by existing laws.

    Now, laws have now been enforced in England and Wales, with the amendments making the following 10 acts towards a partner illegal.

    1. Sharing sexually explicit images of a partner

    New laws surrounding ‘revenge porn’ make it illegal for someone to share intimate photographs of you with anyone, online or otherwise.

    2. Restricting access to finances

    Even if they earn more money than you, the law says your partner cannot stop you from accessing cash within the relationship.

    3. Putting you down

    Persistent name-calling, mocking and other forms of insulting behaviour are now illegal.

    4. Stopping a partner from seeing friends or family

    Monitoring or blocking of calls and emails, telling you where you can or cannot go, and preventing you from seeing your friends or relatives is now against the law. IF your partner isolates you from the people you love, they could face the wrath of the law.

    5. Scaring you

    Your partner might not physically assault you, but if they are doing enough to frighten you, they are committing an offence. That could include using their size to intimidate or breaking things around the house.

    6. Threatening to reveal private things about you

    Repeated threats to reveal personal and private information is now classed as a form of abuse. It could include revealling details about health or sexual orientation.

    7. Putting tracking devices on your phone

    It is illegal under the new legislation to “monitor a person using online communication tools or spyware”.

    8. Being extremely jealous

    Persistent accusation of cheating and “extreme jealousy, including possessiveness and ridiculous accusations of cheating” all come under the new legislation.

    9. Forcing you to obey their rules

    The CPS says if a partner is forced to abide by stringent rules set by a partner, it could mean they are committing a crime.

    10. Controlling what you wear

    Your partner taking control over any part of your life is highlighted in the new legislation, including restricting who you see and where you go.

    Controlling what you wear or how you look could also now be grounds for prosecution under the changes.

    However, unlike child brides and indentured servants, laws of this ilk being instituted in the EU, specifically by the Brits, are certain to inspire a swarm of legislators on this side of the pond..

    And.......My response remains consistent; This is not an area for government intervention.

    Immigration is bringing the child brides and indentured servants etc. to Europe and it threatens to do so here.

    We'll see none of that in the Ozarks.

    Enhanced 'Family Law' is a distinct possibility though.

    Funny thing is the same bunch of loonies calling for sriracha law will call for EU type 'Family Law'.
