Marital dispute is an underestimated and neglected social problem usually approached as marital conflict and patriarchal terrorism. Marital disputes are very frequent and sometimes it is very violent. Most of the times, the disputes are aggravated because no one in the society intervenes thus have chances to lead towards divorce. This book highlights the invisible violence that women experience in the marital relationship. The book argues that marital disputes are not a private concern of family, it is political that needs to be addressed through frame of domestic laws in Pakistan. Use of controlling tactics like verbal abuse, coercion, threats and physical violence is socially constructed and embedded in the structure of marriage. The book also discusses the effects of marital disputes on the well-being of women.
