Abuse occurs when people mistreat or misuse other people. Abusive behaviors are being used to manipulate others. However the uncommon types of misuse are just as important as the normal ones. They include monetary, academic, and mental abuse. Economic maltreatment is a form of abuse when one close spouse has control over the other partner's usage of economic resources, which diminishes the victim's capacity to support him/herself and forces him/her to depend on the perpetrator..
