Inform yourself. Domestic violence has long been a threatening entity with devastating results and irreversible consequences. Abusers often develop deep emotional and psychological problems, sometimes filtering back to their own abused childhood.
Change is never easy, and often achievable for the abuser. Only his willingness to change will delegate his ability to reverse his actions. But he may never fully accept responsibility for his behavior, seek professional treatment, or recognize his role as an abuser. He cannot, however, blame others for his unhappy childhood, work related circumstances, drug or alcohol habits, or his temper. He alone is solely responsible for the choices he makes in his own life. It’s natural to want to help your partner. After all, you did promise to love, honor, and cherish ‘till death do us part. You also believe it’s your responsibility to fix his problems because you alone understand everything about him. However, staying in the relationship, and accepting the abuse dumped on you, is only reinforcing the problem, and keeping the action alive.
Remember. It’s not your responsibility to fix his problems.
