Ask yourself: "is my relationship healthy?"


Is my partner unable to express anger without becoming verbally or physically abusive?


Do I need to ask permission to go out, get a job, go to school, or spend money?


Do I have to cover or make excuses for my partner’s behavior?


Am I put down or called names when we are alone or with others?


Am I blamed whenever things go wrong?


Is my partner a “nasty” drunk or drug user?


Does my partner control the time I spend with family or friends?


Am I forced to have unwanted sex, even after I’ve said “no”?


Am I afraid when I am with my partner? Why?


If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you may be in a relationship with an abuser.  You are not alone.
