What is an abusive relationship?
An abusive relationship between two people involves one having to control and dominate the other – physically, emotionally, sexually, or even economically.
The abusive person could also do all of them.
Abuse slowly works itself into the relationship and it’s difficult to see signs of an abusive partner even if you’ve already been abused.
You may spot a bruised arm or a busted lip, but abuse also comes in other forms so you never realize what’s happening. You’ll only feel weak and helpless.
