Abstract

In a family or household, it’s natural for husband and wife, as well as parents and children, to have tension and disagreement. There is no such thing as a conflict-free household, but conflict in the house hold is not something to be afraid of. Domestic violence is a dangerous crime which if not stopped from the start can escalate to murder. In theory, the cycle of domestic violence (n circle of domestic violence) can start from a husband who is angry with his wife and a husband rebukes his wife. Anger itself can be caused by external factors or internal factors. Externally, the husband may be scolded by his superiors at work, then his frustration is vented to his wife at home. Wives who receive violence from their husbands may vent their anger on their children, who are more helpless. This is because one of the causes of violence is the imbalance of power relations, superiors to subordinates, husbands to wives and wives to children. The passage of Domestic Violence Elimination Act of 2004 (Law No. 23 of 2004) Violence’s political decision taken by women's legislatures and the community, which the Indonesian people should be grateful for.
