Signs of Abusive Relationships

Many people are unaware of the signs and symptoms of a domestic abuse relationship. I found a website that thoroughly explains the signs and symptoms of a domestic abuse relationship. This website also explains in depth the cycles that abusers may go through and some of the tactics that they may use when they are trying to control their partner. This informative website first wants its readers to understand what domestic abuse and domestic violence is. According to the website domestic abuse, which is also known as spousal abuse, is when one person in an intimate relationship or marriage tries to dominate and control the other person. Domestic violence is also included in domestic abuse and is when a person is in an intimate relationship or marriage that uses physical violence against their partner. If one or both of those definitions sound like they may apply to your relationship or to a friend’s relationship, the website then includes a list of questions about how the abuser acts and makes you feel. If you think that those definitions apply to your relationship, I highly recommend you go to this website and read through these questions. The more of these questions you answer “yes” to, the more likely you are to be in an abusive relationship. The link to this website is at the bottom of the page.

There are many different aspects to an abusive relationship, and this graph helps explain that by dividing the circle into multiple different sections explaining how an abuser may treat their victim(s). If one or more of these sections of the graph relate to your relationship or a friend’s relationship, I again highly recommend going to the website to get more information on these portions of the graph. This site also explains how to approach a situation if you are suspicious of a friend or family member that is involved in an abusive relationship. It was also very interesting to learn about the thought cycle that many abusers go through when they are abusing their partner or loved one.
