What does abuse look like?

I had a brief chat with a woman from work. I mentioned that she was being abused and her reply was "Oh, my partner doesn't beat me.".

That made me think...

What do people think abuse is?
What does abuse look like?

Abuse can be mental.
Abuse can be financial.
Abuse does not discriminate!
