The family is the cornerstone of society, but at the same time could be one of the most dangerous places to live. Violence against women in the family appears across the spectrum shape. Most forms are invisible, hidden and happen within the four walls. A large number of victims are forced, with social or some other way to remain silent about their experience. There are differences in modern societies, but their common touch point is patriarchy. Sexual violence in marriage is defined as a sexual intercourse between husband and his wife without wife's approval. There are three forms of sexual violence in marriage: sexual coercion, rape and sexual abuse. Each of them leaves lifelong consequences in the lives of these women. There are big sociocultural differencies; so in some societies abuse of women and children are not considered violence. This, of course, does not help in preventing further offenses and the execution of justice. Women and children abuse can only be prevented with legal regulatives and public sensitization with the help of experts and state institutions.
