Are you a victim of financial abuse? Here's how to tell

How much control do you have of your finances? You may be happy to let your partner take care of the 'money stuff' as that's their strength, while you focus on the things you do well (like organising holidays, supervising home work etc). But sometimes an equal divide of jobs becomes something more sinister. Money, after all, is something we all need to survive. Financial abuse happens when one partner controls the other through economic means. Fiona Mort is the CEO of 1800 Respect, the national sexual assault, domestic family violence counselling service. Fiona outlines the signs that someone might be predisposed to financial abuse, and what we can do if we feel we're in an abusive relationship. 1800 Respect has resources available for people experiencing financial abuse.
