There is currently no reliable measure on suicides separating male and female victims of suicide as a result of IPP/IPV (Intimate Partner Problems/Intimate Partner Violence).

But there is a wealth of evidence showing that men are by far the more common and more violent perpetrators of IPP/IPV.

I could be wrong, but your response seemed to infer that women are somehow just as much at fault as men are. The available statistics strongly indicate just the opposite. If I am indeed wrong, and you did not intend such an inference, then please accept my sincerest apology.
