"The issue that you present is not just a matter of the relation between the two--the abused to the abuser--but also relation between the abuser and others. The abused can and should forgive the abuse she/he had suffered, but must love all the third parties who might suffer (and the abuser him/herself) and therefore do what he/she can to prevent future abuse, and do that both for the sake of the potential victims and for the sake of the abuser. So yes, I think if the potential for future harm is there, prevention (also via reporting to the police) is important. And in any case, I do not think that personal forgiveness is incompatible in all cases with prosecution by the state. Hope this helps."
If anyone was confused with the same things as me, I hope this helped clear it up too.
