About Abusive Relationships

Harmful relationships are defined as unhappy relationships that are on the brink of failing and oftentimes involve abuse or domination of one of the partners over the other. Logically, abusive relationships would not be beneficial to the relationship or the couple involved or the two would seek ways to stay together to fix what went wrong. However, as a popular singer proclaimed, when a person goes through adversities, it makes one stronger having conquered and found the strength to move forward.

Harmful relationships are defined as unhappy relationships that are on the brink of failing and oftentimes involve abuse or domination of one of the partners over the other.  Logically speaking, abusive relationships would not be beneficial to the relationship or the couple involved or the two would seek ways to stay together to fix what went wrong.  However, as a popular singer proclaimed, when a person goes through adversities, it makes one stronger having conquered and found the strength to move on.

Abusive  relationships are prevalent because of the alarming divorce rate that has surpassed over 50 percent of the married population.  The high divorce rate means that there is a lot of abusive relationships abounding resulting in  partners walking away from one another.  Few reports have not been done on the individuals involved in these divorces relative to positive benefits except that it takes about two years for most women to get over a divorce or separation.

Women who have survived abusive relationships are stronger individuals and are no longer doormats having now the responsibility  for themselves.  Without the abusive relationships there would be no way of knowing the strength of a woman for example who has endured years of abuse at the hands of a husband or a boyfriend.  But who would want to suffer an abusive relationship just to measure their strength and character instead of being in the relationship for happiness and contentment.

Tyler Perry, a comedian and movie maker was recently on the Oprah Show and said that his father’s beatings were surmised by the abuser to have catapulted him to fame and fortune.  It is difficult to say the  ”what if’s”  when it comes to benefiting  from abusive  relationships.  Of course the optimal status of married or unmarried relationships is a state of happiness and bliss with the absence of abuse.  The prevalent of abuse in a relationship is not a measurement of strength but the rationality of a person getting out and free of the relationship so they can move on.  But after an abusive  relationship, women who can no longer depend on a partner for financial or emotional security finds other ways to fill the void because they have no other choice. This need to take care of themselves after an abusive relationship does give them the strength to move on especially if children were involved.
