As witnesses, what can we do?
According to Article 3 of the Law on the Prevention and Control of Domestic Violence, domestic violence refers to "physical, mental or economic harassment, control, coercion or other unlawful assault among family members." And the so-called family members, not just the spouses in the marriage, but also include:
Family members as determined by this Act, including the following members and their minor children:
I. Spouse or ex-spouse.
2. Existing or having had a cohabiting relationship, a parent's family member or a family member.
3. Current or former immediate blood relatives or direct in-laws.
4. Blood relatives or side-line in-laws who are or have been to four relatives or others within the four-year-old situated.
It means that even if your neighbors are just living with a gay and lesbian friend, or two boys and girls with same-sex partners, they are actually in line with the domestic violence prevention and control law.
