Physical abuse is when the man (or woman) physically attacks their partner. Hitting, slapping, pushing, punching, throwing things at them, etc. Mental abuse in when they swear and demean their partner. Example: Telling your partner they are good for nothing and will never amount to much. Love is about caring for each other, being loyal, supportive and respect for each other. There is no such thing as a perfect relationship and couples are going to have their arguments, misunderstandings and not always agree with each other. In any relationship whether it's with family, good friends, going steady to marriage and also children it's important that we respect each other if it's given to you and if the person doesn't possess these qualities (of course you instill these qualities in children) then either try to teach them and if they are unwilling to conform it's time to move on with your life. I would like to make it clear that it isn't just men that physically/mentally abuse women (the percentages are higher though) but men also can be physically/mentally abused and society often doesn't recognize this. Whether man or women another individual has NO RIGHT to inflict physical or emotional pain on another.
