Domestic dispute?

Could have been some type of domestic violence situation. I have witnessed so many couples getting into verbal and physical altercations over the years it makes me sick! Seriously, if a relationship is so toxic, kids or not, leave one another! These so called relationships cannot be based on real love. And I can't stand to hear "we stay together for the children", or "I love him / her". Please... And the kids - they suffer in ways we cannot possibly imagine.
