Love Shouldn't Hurt

Abuse can be verbal, physical, or sexual.  Sometimes you can't see the signs. But it is never okay.


Are you in an abusive relationship?

Does your partner:


  • Embarrass you with put-downs?

  • Look at you or act in ways that scare you?

  • Control what you do, who you see or talk to, or where you go?

  • Separate you from friends or family members?

  • Make you financially dependent?

  • Make all of your decisions?

  • Tell you that you are a bad parent or threaten to take away or hurt your children?

  • Prevent you from working or attending school?

  • Act like the abuse is no big deal, that it's your fault, or even deny doing it?

  • Destroy your property or threaten to kill your pets?

  • Intimidate you with knives, guns, or other weapons?

  • Shove, slap, choke, or hit you?

  • Threaten to commit suicide?

  • Threaten to kill you?


If you answered "yes" to even one of these questions, you may be in an abusive relationship.
