Am I in an abusive relationship?

Domestic violence can happen to anyone in all segments of the community regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, culture, ethnicity, age, physical ability, education, politics, socioeconomic class, and religion.


Do you or someone you know:

  • Live in fear of an intimate partner?

  • Get blamed whenever things go wrong?

  • Have a partner who controls when and where you go, what you do, and who you see and talk to?

  • Have a partner with a “Jekyll & Hyde” personality?

  • Make excuses for your partner’s behavior?

  • Have to ask permission to work or spend money?

  • Tell yourself, “It’s really not so bad?”

  • Feel threatened, degraded, or forced to do things against your will?



Everyone has the right to:


  • Be treated with respect.

  • Make their own decisions.

  • Express their own opinions.

  • Say no.

  • Come and go as they please.

  • Maintain their own identity, social life, and interests.

  • Privacy.

  • Control their own money.

  • Do things without asking for their partner’s permission.

  • Safe and healthy relationships for themselves and their children.
