It's not that simple, in fact everything about Domestic Violence and Relational Abuse is complex. Probably the most complex part about it is the decision to make an exit, leave the relationship, permanently exit the home, and no longer associate with your partner. One of the most sobering statistics and strongest cases for having a safety plan and exit strategy is the fact that 75% of women who are murdered are as a result of domestic homicide, with the majority of those occurrences happening either after they have ended the relationship or in the midst of attempting to end it. Based on that alone, the decision to leave definitely requires planning.
