It’s most important to know that abuse is a choice, and it’s not one that anyone has to make.People abuse their partners because they believe they have the right to control the person they’re dating. Maybe they believe that they should be in charge in the relationship. Many people experience or witness abuse growing up and decide not to use those negative and hurtful ways of behaving.
