- The Issue of Abuse -

Love for Spouse

 

Most people enter a relationship for love, and that emotion does not simply disappear easily or in the face of difficulty.

Recognizing that love is not a factor may help. Abuse comes from the abusers personal emotional, behavorial and psychological problems. Abuse is learned behavior.

After a battering, the abuser often is extremely penitent. Because we want relationships to work we accept the penitents and the cycle can continue.

Because the abusers and/or the abused persons self-esteem is so low following the incident, the apologies and promises of reform are often perceived as the end of the abuse. (see cycle of violence)
