It depends on the circumstances. If you believe you have been the victim of a crime you should call the police. They will investigate whether a crime has been committed. I also suggest you contact Cornerstone, which is your local domestic violence shelter. They will put you in touch with resources to improve your situation. Good luck
The answer depends on the conduct involved. Certainly physical harm or a threat of imminent physical harm could be charged as an assault which is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $1000 fine for a fifth degree assault. You may also wish to consider seeking a restraining order.

If you are the victim of a crime then you should contact the police. Otherwise, no one will ever know and then the answer would be that "no it will not be punishable with jail or fines" by default because the police were never notified of a crime.
