QUIZ: Is My Relationship Healthy? - barcelonatraveller.info
Everyone deserves to be in a safe and healthy relationship. Do you know if your relationship is healthy? Answer yes or no to the following questions to find out. Controlling behaviour is a form of abuse. There's a common misconception that a relationship is only abusive when there is physical violence or bullying. When it comes to love, our society romanticizes intense, controlling relationships so much that it can be hard to recognize them for what they.
Finances are a big issue. This is one of those issues where opposites produce the same outcome. In some controlling relationships, the boyfriend gradually, or not so gradually, does little or nothing to support the couple. All that would be fine if the couple had a reasonable way of sharing and managing the family income. She ends up even further isolated and dependent on him.
He is never at fault. In fact, he is phobic about blame.
The controlling guy always finds a way to make you feel that anything that goes wrong in your relationship is all about you. Instead of discussing your concern, you find yourself on the defensive. Instead of working out a compromise, you feel you have to give in or the fight will go on forever.
Often these relationships become physically abusive. What generally follows are accusations, blaming, relentless grilling, and anger. How do you explain away something that never happened in the first place? If you believe that there is real love underneath all the drama, by all means try to talk it out and work it out.
Do what you need to do to extricate yourself safely. Hold out for the kind of love you deserve. Resources If you are afraid to end your relationship, you need help and support to stay safe. Call the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence at or visit their website at www.
