‘Hitting Home with Sarah Ferguson,’ a two-part documentary on domestic violence in Australia, airs Nov. 24 and 25

Isabella Cullen’s husband, Ben, hit her in the face as he held their child in his arms.

Wendy fled her ex-partner with her children. They had only the clothes they were wearing.

“Rachel’s” injuries are documented by a doctor who runs a forensic domestic violence service.

These are some of the stories included in “Hitting Home with Sarah Ferguson,” a documentary about the “epidemic” of domestic violence in Australia. It airs Tuesday, Nov. 24, and Wednesday, Nov. 25, on ABC in Australia.

As the women tell their stories, they describe the same behaviors we discuss here on Lovefraud every day. The stories are chilling.

4 reasons why psychopaths will never stop cheating

Is your partner a sociopath?Do you have absolute proof that your partner is cheating — but he or she denies it?

When you confront your partner about cheating, does he or she say it’s your fault?

Does your partner pick a fight with you, and use the fight as an excuse to storm out of the house — and see someone else?

If you answer yes to these questions, you may be involved with a psychopath — for more warning signs, get the exclusive Lovefraud checklist.


10 rules for keeping psychopaths and Cluster Bs out of your life

Highly sensitive individuals are certainly going to suffer from shock, among other deep emotional symptoms, after dealing with a psychopath.

I was raised in a highly dysfunctional Italian family so the ability to rebound has helped tremendously in adult life. My childhood was a sink or swim situation of whose lessons I’ve carried into adulthood. This has made it much easier to overcome the experiences I’ve personally had with psychopaths/sociopaths (and there has been more than one).

Nine years ago today, on Nov. 20, 2006, the bodies of four women were found in a drainage ditch outside of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Nobody was ever arrested in the case. Now, a criminal profiler from New Jersey, John Kelly of S.T.A.L.K. Inc, is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer.

The profile Kelly and his team developed is chilling. It reads, in part:

When You “Lose Yourself” Due To A Sociopath, Recovery Is Hard—Really Hard


If I hear one more reporter or talk show host ask a victim of partner abuse, “Why did you stay?” and not really listen to the answer or not try to understand the psychology of how emotional, psychological, financial, and/or physical abuse can rewire your brain and murder your soul, I will scream.

I want to scream because I don’t think the interviewer is really looking for an answer.

Editor’s note: Lovefraud received the following email from a reader whom we’ll call “Caitlyn.”

I was being lied to for about 6 months by the guy I had been dating.

He was very charming, great sense of humor, and seemed to be very caring and genuine. Always told me I was beautiful and after about a month or so he loves me and is in love with me!

Red flag number one! Why did he say those words that soon!!?

Lovefraud recently received the following email from a reader whom we’ll call “Agatha.”

Since I found your website I have been doing a lot of reading, learning, and understanding.

I made my break from my spath about three years ago. I keep reading how a spath knows who and how to catch a person in their web. Seemingly being very intelligent as to getting exactly what they want from us.

In my case, my spath doesn’t seem to be all that intelligent. Does this mean that I was taken in by a man of low intellect, and what does that say about me?

Editor’s note: Lovefraud received the following email from a reader whom we’ll call “Gabriela.” She lives outside of the United States.

My heart is aching because of what happened to me. I met a guy, I don´t know if he´s a sociopath, but he betrayed me.

I met him once in at the pool area in a casino hotel in the U.S. I was traveling there with some family, I´m from another country. We had this great chemistry since that day that we met. We spoke for hours, invited me to go out but I couldn’t.
