== == Only if both parties are willing to get help and work through their issues. I know a couple that did, but it takes *a lot* of work. Yet, if your not willing to my advice would be to walk away, because no one deserves to live a life of abuse.

Yes it's possible for two people to both be abusive. It's called "an adrenalin rush." Each person eggs the other on and the sad thing is, it's not really about winning, but just the sport of humiliating someone. One partner can be abusive and the victim that has to put up with it can also pick up the habits of abuse. For example: A woman can be abused by her husband and in turn it's possible she can abuse her own children. Part of it is the feeling she has lost total control and doesn't know how to get out of the situation, but she can take those frustrations out on the children because she knows she has control and they don't. Not all abused women pick on their children. No, there is little hope of both parties sticking together if they are both abusive. It's like one alcoholic helping another and I'm talking about someone who has kicked the alcohol habit. Two emotionally abused people just can't help each other and stats show that abusive people seldom get help for their problems.

if he want to commit sadist acts with you such as murder, bondage, or bestiality, then he is prolly still abusive.

Yes, it is possible if you both make an effort to do so. My father and I are slowly repairing a relationship that had been destroyed as a child. it has taken many years, but I can understand more on why he was the way he was. It doesn't make it right, but it helps to understand.

One adjective that describes a healthy relationship is nurturing. example sentence: She left an abusive relationship in hopes of finding one that is more nurturing.

No the abuser does not love that person they love controlling and abusing that person and that's it. It is difficult for there to be love in an abusive relationship. The abuser can not truly give love or receive it because he or she is mentally disabled. The abusive personality is a mental disorder and the abuser needs to seek psychiatric help. An abusive relationship is not a healthy one and no matter what the abuser says, he or she can not love you, it is obsession and control that drives an abusive partner.

The word ignore does not belong in the same sentence with the word abuse. I have never heard of a honeymoon phase, what exactly is this. The honeymoon in a healthy relationship can last as long as the two people want, its what they put into it. Get therapy or counseling on why you would accept this and dont delay. You are not supposed to ignore an abusive relationship that is how they abuser gains power over time......

Answer The worst thing anyone can do after getting out of an abusive relationship is to get involved with anyone on a serious level if you haven't gotten proffessional help first. Some people can walk away from such things as an abusive relationship, but not many are that strong. If you haven't sought some kind of Thearipy perhaps you should as you will always feel threatened when the other person raises his voice to you. Why go through that pain, do something about it first.

Sociopaths are incapable of having healthy relationships. They cannot love, either. Instead, they try to turn anyone with whom they have a relationship into a victim. Their relationships are inherently abusive.

Conflict is not healthy for a relationship it cause negative energy

Some one who does not understand BDSM posted "being into bdsm is an unhealthy sign" this is a lie. All studies of people into BDSM have shown that most people into BDSM are happy normal people who just have kinks to there life. Most people who are into abusive relationships never get into BDSM relationships. If someone is into BDSM and there is also a abusive relationship going on all you need to do is look for the normal signs of a abusive relationship. Most BDSM couples for the most part have happy and healthy relationships but have a relationship that looks more like the idealized ones from the 1950's and may add play that would look abusive from the outside but is truly not. What I would tell people is take time to talk to both parties and look for the signs of an abusive relationship.

A healthy relationship is happy. A healthy relationship is honest and helpful.

Yes, but if it is a healthy relationship then they will also have friendship and activities within the relationship too.

The perception of the family regarding healthy relationship is is that there should be trust in that relationship. Also, it should be a friendly relationship

im in a healthy relationship

The guy and girl both need to do their part in sustaining a healthy relationship:)

A healthy relationship is pertinent both physically and mentally, and in some cases, spiritually. It is important to base and develop a relationship on trust, loyalty, and love. If your relationship is unhealthy it is likely to take a toll on your physical state, emotional state, or spiritual state. Most often, this is thought of in an abusive manner; however, this is not always the case. People can find themselves lacking proper connection to a partner from something as simple as differing views or values. A healthy relationship is different for every individual but it always involves feelings of comfort, peace, and happiness.

Are you in a relationship? If so, then it will be strained. Don't even worry about it. If you are in a relationship that is healthy enough to work through the strains, then you are in a good and healthy partnership.

First, respect her, and show by example. Ask for her respect. If she cannot be respectful, it will be a bad relationship. She needs to learn respect. Read up on abusive and healthy relationships. If she is abusive, it is better for you both to separate. you should ask her nicely if she can be more respectful.if she tells u not to tell her what to do find a girl your type

A relationship should be healthy, both physically and emotionally. It takes work but always love yourself and remember your own worth as a person who deserves to be treated with love and respect. If someone can't treat you the way you deserve to be treated than you are better off without them.

You can keep healthy through a varied diet, exercise, and a healthy relationship

There really is no such thing as a healthy relationship, as every one has its flaws, and every one has a different definition of 'healthy'. However, as long as there's no abuse, lots of fighting, or second thoughts; then I'd say you're okay in your 'healthy' relationship. :)

A healthy relationship is one that is beneficial and makes you happy. An unhealthy relationship is one that causes you unnecessary stress, frustration and despair.

Not a healthy relationship.. that's for sure

There is the healthy and unhealthy relationship. A healthy relationship is when you respect someone, is trustworthy, honest, has integrity and so on. An unhealthy relationship includes disrespect, rude, dishonest, mean, and so on.An unhealthy and healthy relationship includes friends, boyfriend and girlfriend, and more.affair (a usually secretive or illicit sexual relationship)

you answered your own question get out and stay healthy

Well, it depends upon how big of a lie and how consistent of a liar you are. But lying is not at all healthy for a relationship and yes, it is quite possible that it could end a relationship as well.
