For many reasons, but usually because of person in the relationship feels the needs to assert their power of the other -maybe they don't have much power in their everyday life so need to exert it over someone often weaker or nicer.

AnswerA lot of abusive relationships happen because of either jealousy or just the fact that they are tougher than you. my sister was in a relationship like that, he was a real jealous guy, because my sister is beautiful girl and he didn't like the fact that other guys would look at her or talk to her, so he would take it out on her by abusing her, mostly verbally but a lot of physical abuse too.

Personally I think they happen because people don't know how to control what's bottled up inside, so they take it out on someone who they know they can affect. usually there past isn't good, or maybe they were a victim of being abused, so when they grow up, that's what they have seen, and know. I'm not saying it's good, but it happens, and people need to start realizing who has that potential in them.

I guess it really depends. Most of the time, when a child is abused as a child or sees their mother/father being abused by another parent, they take it out on someone else. They usually take it out on their child or the people they love.

Sometimes they have mental problems and don't know what they're doing. And other times, they may just be drunk.
