An informal definition of “intimacy” may help you to understand your relationship and your rights in it.
Intimacy is defined by the law as a commitment to remain in touch and see each other regularly.
Intimate relationships are defined by a legal definition, which differs from state to state.
The legal definition may include one-on-one time, casual or no contact, sexual intimacy or non-sexual intimacy.
When you are married, you are considered to be an intimate partner for purposes of the law.
The definition of an intimate relationship may also include more formal and complex forms of relationships, such as marriage, or children, as well as non-extramarital relationships.
The following are some common definitions of intimacy and how they apply to a relationship in your state.
Intrusive Communication – Intrusion in the form of a threatening or insulting communication is considered an “intrusive communication.”
For example, when you have a long, tense argument, you may be considered an intrusive communication.
This may include the following: calling you by name, calling or texting your cellphone, or making repeated phone calls or texting.
These acts may violate state law.
Intentional Threat – Intentionally making a threat of serious harm or causing a substantial risk of serious damage to someone is considered a “serious threat.”
For instance, a neighbor who threatens to kill your children by shooting at them with a gun is considered to have committed a “severe threat” that is considered by the courts to be a “dangerous act.”
For a parent to be considered a serious threat, the parent must have acted with the intent of causing the victim harm.
When the parent has not acted with that intent, it is not considered a threat, and the parent does not have to prove that the child was threatened.
Intended Marriage – An intended marriage is one in which a person wants to marry another person.
The term intended marriage can be used when both parties are legally married.
The parties to a marriage must agree to marry.
The courts have ruled that there are two types of marriages: “purely voluntary” and “constructed.”
Purely voluntary marriages are not considered marriages.
These are the type that you can legally enter into if you have been married before.
Constructed marriages are marriages that are formed after a marriage is legally established.
These marriages must be legally valid.
For instance: a parent and his or her child entered into a “pure purely voluntary” marriage in which the parent and child both have the legal right to marry each other.
However, the marriage was not legally recognized by the court.
For a couple who is legally married, this means that the parent is obligated to live with his or the child, but the parents’ relationship is legal.
Intense Relationship – Intense physical contact is considered as an intimate contact and is defined as the “intense physical activity” or “physical contact that leads to physical injury or damage.”
Examples of physical contact include, but are not limited to, hitting, slapping, punching, and kicking.
For example: when you are walking in a park and your spouse says “come over here, come over here,” you may hit your spouse with your fist, then kick him.
If the husband then punches you in the face, you might hit him with your feet, then slap him.
The court may decide that your spouse’s fist was “intimate” because it was “excessive, aggressive, and violent.”
Intense Physical Contact may also be considered “intended marriage” or a “conceived marriage” in which both parties intend to marry in a specific location and have agreed on the specific details of the ceremony.
If you or a partner is injured during an Intense Sexual Contact (ISC) or Intense Intimidating Communications (ISIC) incident, you or your partner must report the incident to the police.
For Intense Contact, the police will investigate and charge you with the crime of Intentioned Assault.

Intensive Communication – This type of contact occurs when one person verbally or physically threatens another person, including a spouse, with physical harm or death.
The threat may include, for example, a threat to kill the other person.
This type can also include: threatening to kill, injure, or destroy someone’s life.
Threatening to use physical force against a person, especially someone who has committed a crime.
Forcing a person to go to an unsafe place, such a swimming pool or an airplane, or to make someone wear a mask.
Intent on Intimidate – Intent is the use of force or intimidation to coerce a person into performing a duty or action.
Intent may also refer to the person’s intent to inflict physical injury.
Intensifying a threat or threat of physical harm, such that the
