Ron and Sammie from MTV’s Jersey Shore started off as a happy couple but it went downhill quickly.
Domestic Violence is a serious problem affecting women in today’s world. One of the biggest problems surrounding domestic violence is getting the woman or in some cases the man to admit that he is being abused. Domestic Violence is not something to take sitting down. Here are some easy signs to look out for in cases of domestic violence.
1. Your partner hurts you or threatens to hurt you.
Physical abuse is never okay. If your partner is hurting you physically or emotionally than that is an immediate sign that you are in an abusive relationship. If your partner is threatening you than you need to take notice and make changes in your life.
2. Your partner destroys your belongings.
If your partner takes his anger out on your belongings than you have to call it quits. You are obviously in a very toxic, Ron and Sammie style (please refer to Jersey Shore) relationship. The only cure is total separation.
3. Your partner humiliates and treats you so bad you’re embarrassed for your friends and family to be around.
If you are with someone that makes it impossible for you to enjoy being with your friends and family than that is an immediate red flag. The person you are with should make you a better person and make you feel happy no matter who else you are around.
4. You partner controls every aspect of your life.
Your life should only be controlled by one person. You. The moment you let another person tell you when you can go places, who you can spend time with, and where you can go is the the moment that you have lost control of your life. If your partner is controlling your life than you need to get out and take control because this is a very active form of abuse.
5. You partner acts overly jealous and possessive.
If your partner really loved you than he or she would know that there was nothing to worry about and they would not be overly jealous or possessive. When your partner does this it can cause tension because they always think the worst of you when you are doing nothing wrong. If your partner is showing signs of this than it is time to cut them out of your life. Another classic reason why Ron and Sammie should never be together.
