Whenever I read of stories of how girls are being bullied or abused by their boyfriends or husbands, I will fume. Worse if it happens to my own friends or someone I know. Yesterday, there was an article from Straits Times on a survey done by BBC. A third of teenage girls suffer sexual abuse in a relationship and a quarter experience violence at the hands of their boyfriends, the survey has suggested.
