What would you like to do?
You can find abuse statistics here:
It would seem that both are equally abused (when in a relationship) - but the NATURE of the abuse changes with the woman's age.
I am 40 and have been in a number of relationships, beginning in my teens. Looking back, I would say that the "early ones" were more mild, although manipulative. It was after I had my son that I seem to have appeared more vulnerable. . . He's grown now and, unfortunately, I still have not broken the cycle. I am SO HAPPY!! to find this site and God Bless All of You. By sharing experiences I pray that we renew our strength and spirit. This man I have been with for 7 Loooong years ought to get right! Alas, I know in my heart he won't, soooo time for a plan of action. This particular one has been the worst because it contains all of the dynamics described in these threads and articles. . .I am wondering if that is the reference to the "age factor"?
I would appreciate elaboration on: "the NATURE of the abuse changes with a woman's age". (sorry if I paraphrased) I would never want another to travel the road I have, become middle aged and figure out how futile the effort has been. It's hard to start over, and over, and over. . .
There are absolutely no age preferences to abuse. It depends strictly on the abusers personality and how he/she was brought up. There are actually abusers that came from good families, so often the fact they were abused in their home comes under question.
The only thing that will change from when you are younger to as you get older is having more experience with the opposite sex and hopefully seeing the danger signs.
Ordering you around
Being selfish and not sharing things with you such as what movie you both might like to see or what restaurant you would like to go too.
Not turning up to see you or breaking dates without giving you a good reason.
Raising a fist or open hand to you even though they may not strike you.
Calling you names that are offensive or even "stupid, fat, ugly, etc."
Putting you down constantly and this means doing the same thing in front of your friends. Usually the abuser is too smart to do it in front of your family.
Controlling aspects of your life that you should be free to control on your own. ie: going back to college, take courses, improving your lifestyle in any way, etc.
Hope this answers your question.

Good question. It can be pretty infuriating, can't it? Particularly if you're a good driver. But. statistically speaking, men under 25 cause more accidents than any other …demographic group. Some carriers even make the cut-off date age 30(!). So, what if you're under 25, and you've never had an accident in your life, never made a claim, never had a ticket...never even thought about getting behind the wheel after having a couple of beers? Why are you "paying the price" when you don't contribute to accidents? Because of the "law of large numbers," which is what insurance is based on. Everybody pays into a pool, and those who need the money get it. The system works because not everyone makes claims, and so the relatively small amount you pay in premiums can be applied to the larger payments for accidents. But since you fall in a higher-risk category, you're expected to pay more, even if you never, ever take advantage of your insurance policy. It's similar to a person who pays a higher premium for his 2004 Cadillac Escalade, compared to a person driving a 1998 Honda Civic. The Cadillac driver, by virtue of owning such an expensive car, has assumed a higher risk, and pays accordingly. Naturally, you don't get to choose to be under 25 (as opposed to a person who chooses to buy a Cadillac), but the principles are the same. However, there are some contradictions to the "law of large numbers" in this scenario. According to an Allstate report It seems to indicate that the female drivers are beginning to become more of a driving hazard than male drivers. There's more too, As more and more women get on the road, their driving reputation diminishes. This seems to indicate that women were getting into less accidents as drivers because they spent less time driving than men.
Fertility . I got my period when I was 12 and my periods were irregular until I was about the age of 18 or 19. I'm now 24. Just gave birth to my son. I got preggars on my f…irst month of trying. I really don't think anyone can answer this person because everyone is different. A woman may be 19 years old with irregular periods or have cists or endometriosis, while a 25 year old may have no problems and gets preggars without trying. Or a 40 year old woman could fall prego without hardly trying and a 19 year old struggles because of the issue above.
Im 17 and many women hit on you at beach given their ages range from 25 - 45 is it ok if you satisfy their needs?
You do not want to get those women into trouble with the law. Wait until the day you are 18 and then go for it. Satisfy all their needs. Have a ball.
Men, because they are stronger than a women when they are a adult. It would depend on what you mean by abusive, as women can be more abusive verbally, which could result in …a man getting physical. Cases where women are physically abusive, don't tend to be reported, as it is embarrassing for a man, also many believe they wouldn't be taken seriously.
wear stilettos ; )
The bmi for someone who is considered "super obese" is 60, you've done your calculations wrong.Source: http://www.halls.md/body-mass-index/bmirefs.htm
From the Australia's Health 2006 survey, 19% of men and 22% of women aged 25 years and over were obese and an additional 48% of men and 30% of women were overweight in 1999-20…00. In another survey conducted by the World Health Organisation, they estimated that 75.7% of men and 66.5% of women in Australia would be overweight by 2010 (this year). They also estimated that 28.4% of men and 29.1% of women in Australia would be obese by this year.
They have periods during which they lose a lot of minerals such as calcium.
Men don't mind being dirty slobs somewhat, hence they're used to having an overpopulation of bacteria.
Since there is only one number given, it is impossible to work out the range.
GECADO was a tradename of inexpensive handguns marketed by a firm in West Germany, mainly in the 1950s and 60s. The firearms were made by multiple other companies, typically i…n Eibar Spain. Values are typically in the $25-$75 range.
Young people, because they do not drink enough water and are always running around playing.
Women are more susceptible to cancer because it is very common for women to have mood swings. Mood swings are bad for health as they affect hormone production. Fluctuating h…ormonal level is a main cause for cancer.
That's a silly question. Women commit themselves to the birth of achild, when they think that the time is right. It doesn't matterwhat age they are. (Aslong as it's a legal ag…e)
15/25 divided by 16/25= 15/25 times 25/16= 375/400= 15/16
