Get Help For Abusive Relationships.

Help for abusive relationships should come quick, or as soon as this habit is identified, to save the victim.  But emotional abuse in relationships mainly involve a silent psychological torture which is not easily recognized until some sort of outward effects show up. By this time, quite a lot of internal damages may have been so done that whatever signs that appear outside would just be the overflow.

But why is it that most people do not seek help for abusive relationships but endure the agony for too long? The straight answer to that is that most people do not even recognize when they are abused by their spouses. Many forms of abuse are muted and not so easy to identify, at least until more obvious injuries manifest.

Let me make this clarification; abusive habits may occur in dating or marriage relationships and with the lady or the man as the abuser. However, the bulk of complaints are against men. Abuses also cut across individuals of various ages, races, ethnic backgrounds, status and lifestyles.

In this piece, I shall discuss abuse in relationships against women by their male partners.

Most women may admit abuse but reject help because they think it will bring more trouble. Some imagine that help action will anger their spouse to be more wicked.

The common idea of domestic violence is usually the physical type where this big guy beats up his weaker spouse in a fit of rage and cruelty. But this is not the entire picture as emotional tortures are as hurtful, if not more, than the body strikes.

Why Emotional Abuse Is Growing Faster In Many Homes.

Emotional abuse in relationships is usually more devastating than the physical one. Both physical and emotional abuses can lead to instant death in the extreme. Emotional abuses, though more devastating, grow faster among couples because it is concealed to others. However, the abused often suffer severe psychological trauma, deep despair and depression long after the hit.

Sex, even in marriage, should still be consensual. A spouse has the right to refuse sex or to stop it.

 Regrettably, much of the help for abusive relationships address the physical side because it is easy to see and prove. Victims in emotional abusive relationships often have to contend with the following psychological tortures:

  • Strict control and domineering acts involving regular interrogation.

  • Forced isolation from friends and family.
  • Issue of threats of harm or withdrawal of some rights or privilege.
  • Shouting, yelling and intimidation at the spouse
  • Being rude or insulting the spouse in public or in front of others.
  • Constant suspicion, shadowing and scrutiny of spouse movements and activities.

Another common type of physical abuse is forced sex or rape. Sex, even in marriage, should still be consensual. A spouse has the right to refuse sex or to stop it. It becomes physical abuse when your partner forcefully attempts to, or goes ahead to have his way.

Finding Help For Abusive Relationships.

People often find it shameful or embarrassing to admit they are in abusive relationships, so it’s harder to seek or offer help to the vast majority of women who suffer domestic violence. But one could spot the abused by a closer observation of patterns of behavior. Some of the tell-tale signs of abuse include:

  • Absence from work, school or church. This may be sudden and prolonged without explanation.
  • When this person does not visit or hang around where she used to.
  • She feels uneasy and tense when her ‘bully’ partner is mentioned in a conversation.
  • She spends almost all her time with her spouse out of fear.
  • You notice extreme unfriendly changes in her behavior and reaction to others and issues.

Help for abusive relationships starts with close observation. As soon as you observe a combination of those highlights, you should help to halt her misery and even save her life. Below are suggested preliminary action steps:

  • Arrange a frank talk with her. Depending on the level of trust and her mood, you could wisely get her to be honest.
  • Get her to agree to accept help. Most women may admit abuse but reject help because they think it will bring more trouble. Some imagine that help action will anger their spouse to do more violence, while some others fear it could end their marriage.
  • Get her out of the abuse zone. If she agrees to help, then get her out of that zone. This will relax her and help her to absorb the help therapy.
  • Seek qualified therapist or counselor to attend to her.
