Are You In An Abusive Relationship? Women’s Shelters Can HelpWritten on May 23, 2014
A married relationship is supposed to be equal between two people. When one of them is mistreated, it adds pressure to the whole relationship. But if your spouse is abusive toward you, then you have grounds to leave, and ask for a divorce. Your physical safety and mental health should never be at risk at the hands of someone who loves you.
If your spouse intimidates you, threatens to hurt you, or has already been physically abusive, it’s time to walk away. No one deserves to be treated that way, and you certainly deserve better.
If you are afraid to admit that abuse exists in your home, ask yourself these questions:
- Does your spouse threaten to hurt you?
- Does your spouse act out in a violent way toward you?
- Are you ever afraid of your partner?
- Has your spouse ever physically hurt you?
- Does your spouse stalk you or follow you while you are out, or at your job?
If any of your answers are YES, then you need to get help. It helps to call someone who can advise you on what to do when you are confused and hurt. Women’s shelters are available to you, in or near Cobb County Georgia. They can assist you with a place to stay for you and your children.
