From the Paper:

"Characteristics of the first stage or the stage of 'tension-building' include jealousy and hostility with a general negative behavioral patterns seen coming form the abuser and directed toward the victim. (Marvin, 1997) The second phase, or the phase of bettering is characterized by the victim being battered and it is in this phase that the abuser loses their control and batters the victim to illustrate that it is they that are in control. (Marvin, 1997) Finally the third stage of the domestic abuse cycle is one that is "calm and loving" (Marvin, 1997) During this final stage the abuser is apologetic and is able to convince the abused that he really will change often resulting in the charges filed with police being dropped. It is important according to Marvin to realize that this sequence is not followed by all abusers because instead of being apologetic many abusers will simply return to the victim again or make threats in order to force the withdrawal of the complaint by the victim.(Marvin, 1997) One sure thing is that "battering in a relationship will not improve on its own. Intervention is essential to stop the reign of terror." (Marvin, 1997) p.13"
