Is your relationship abusive?

Emotional or physical violence is not a part of a normal, healthy relationship. How do you know if your relationship is abusive?
Ask yourself these questions…

• Does your partner make jokes at your expense or put you down?
• Do they threaten you or throw things when they are angry?
• Have they pressured you to perform a sexual act?
• Have they physically hurt you in the past year?
• Do they say that it is your fault if they hit you?
• Do they promise it won’t happen again, but it does?

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, your relationship is not healthy. Talk with your physician. Help is also available by contacting Branches Domestic Violence Shelter at 304-529-2382 or the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-SAFE (7233)
