    For those unfamiliar with the intricacies of domestic-violence, it’s simple to scoff and say, “If I were her, I would pack up and leave,” or “Why doesn’t he just change the locks and his phone number?”  But the complexities of domestic violence, also referred to as intimate-partner violence (IPV), are anything but simple.
