If you experience these symptoms, it is time to resolve it as quickly as possible. It is usually very difficult to overcome those problems alone, and get help, or in some cases come out, if one is tortured by the relationship, including children, are encouraged.
- You afraid of your partner, because you have learned to expect a furious response that comes with the name-calling, insults rude or abusive, or suitable angry.
- You no longer talk to each other beyond the very basic needs of living space together.
- One or both of you use indirect, passive-aggressive means to “get” the other, and you often have the feeling that you have pressed the stomach but do not know why.
- You or your partner spend a night away from home without calling to let your partner know where they are or when they will return. A version of this lower, but still damaging the relationship, occurs when one or both partners often stay out partying with other people without their spouse until very late.
- Any incidents of domestic violence, including throwing objects, pushing, hitting, kicking, biting, or physical aggression towards others. “Lesser” this version, but still very destructive, occurred by violence against pets, or threats of violence against living beings. Still of concern is when one or both partners are throwing things on the walls, break things at home, or damage to property.
- Any event that threatens other pairs, indicating they will hurt you (or you will hurt them) directly or by hurting themselves. (Some of the veiled threat of suicide attempts to make her partner feel so guilty that they become afraid to say or do anything that might interfere with their partners, such as leave the relationship.)
- One or both partners use and abuse of drugs, including alcohol, on a regular basis, to the extent that it interferes with the relationship. This is an individual problem and not might be an indication that the relationship is in trouble – the person in trouble, and they drink / use will negatively affect the relationship.
- One or both partners use their children to hurt their partner or use them to send messages back and forth to their partner.
- When couples have a lot of hardship in their lives, people might wonder why they live together? But there are many ways couples find it locked, especially because of the children and finances. Sometimes there is a real threat that if one partner makes all moved away, another couple will actually try to harm them in some way. This is a very abusive situation that is beyond the need for therapy, and couples may need to use local resources of a safe house from domestic violence.
