Survivor Story: Carie Charlesworth

The first time Carie Charlesworth’s husband abused her was six years and four children into their marriage. It was 2006, Carie’s birthday. The California mom had gone to a concert with her sister to celebrate and, on her way home, texted her husband Martin to let him know she was stuck in traffic. By the time she stopped by her parents’ house to pick up the couple’s 1-year-old daughters, it was almost 1 a.m.

“When I got home, all my clothes were on the front lawn,” says Carie. Her husband would tell her later that he knew she was lying. She hadn’t been at the concert or stuck in traffic. She had been talking to other men, probably with the intent of cheating on him. It’s something he had accused her of many times before, even though she says she never gave him any reason to think she was unfaithful.

New App Detects Dangerous Relationships

The idea might seem a bit absurd—someone can actually be in an abusive relationship and not even recognize it? Unfortunately, it happens more often than you think.

It’s easy to spot an abusive relationship as an outsider, or as someone who’s never experienced one. He hits you? Abuse. He puts you down frequently? Abuse. He controls your every move? Abuse.

The reality is, when you are in an abusive relationship, it’s not always that black and white. What if he only threatens to hit you, but never does? What if you’re scared of him, but not all the time? What if he always apologizes, gives you lavish gifts after a fight, promises to never do it again?

Now, a new app from the One Love Foundation, called the MyPlan app, is a quick way to judge the danger level of your relationship.

The Cost of Domestic Violence

Every minute, 20 people in the U.S. become victims of intimate partner violence. [1] Every minute. The effects of domestic abuse run the gamut from bruises to homicide, and everything in between. While this epidemic costs many things—marriages, childhoods, lives—it also has very real, and very significant, monetary costs as well.
