There is no single prototype of an abused spouse. Publically prominent people such as actors, politicians, and socialites have all been victims of abuse. Some victims have learned, as a coping mechanism, to put on a good front to the outside world. Even with obvious bruises or right after the abuser makes a rude comment towards them, they will smile and deny that any sort of abuse is going on. Even when the victim has a social life, she is still mentally isolated from other people--she feels she cannot admit to being abused out of fear or being seen as weak.
