Is yours an abusive relationship? What can you do about it? Should you leave?

Abusive relationships are deeply destructive, and it’s usually best to end them. Even if your partner wants to change, it’s easier to achieve that in a new relationship, a relationship begun AFTER they have conquered their problems.

With the best will in the world, it’s too easy for people who once shared an abusive relationship to slip back into the old patterns, and so that the abuse goes on.
