Why women remain in relationship to violent men is one of the most frequently asked questions, and the answers are numerous and very complex.
Today, instead of asking that question, we ask another – how can you recognize that your relationship could become violent? Here are the 5 early signs:
#1 Exaggerated need for control
The man who always wants to know where you are, with whom you are and when you have come home, and in addition prohibits you from certain things, is not in love – he simply can not bear it without you.
#2 Continuous humiliation
This can start as a nice teasing, but if in time you turn into a serious listing of your shortcomings, you are dealing with a psychological abuser who can turn into physical.
#3 Extreme jealousy
Jealousy can be sweet and cute, but it may also be the first sign of a serious problem. If your partner is jealous of the friends you see, it is possessive and there are outbursts of rage because of the clothes you wear, things could become violent if you do not play by his rules.
In the quarrels, we often know that something will be omitted to offend our partner, but if he constantly calls you with abusive names and warns you, it’s a matter of time before verbal insults will no longer be enough.
The classical way in which offenders “process” their victim – will assure you that you are the problem in the relationship, that everyone around you is different and that you should be ashamed of your behavior. Once you “break”, the chances are that you will get the courage to go to someone for help.
