In a normal healthy relationship, there will always be fighting, and only through these arguments does a couple understand the differences, the likes and dislikes. What is not normal is when a relationship, be it couples or married becomes one sided. One partner has total control over the other mentally, physically and emotionally.
I once met a guy and he told us his ideal wife is one that doesn’t work, preferably one that stays at home and watches TV all day long. His reason being that a woman with no income and no social contacts is easy to control. More often than not it is easier to blame the women for allowing this to happen to her, but like the boiling frog theory, a frog will not realize it is being boiled to death if it is placed in warm water and gradually heated up.
Can a male partner in an abusive and toxic relationship change for the better? Never! How to fix a toxic relationship? You can’t. Why do people stay in abusive relationships? Hope, they are waiting for a miracle that will never happen. Warning signs of a toxic relationship.
He doesn’t like you to socialize, be it male or female friends and family members.
He prefers you not working for no good reasons, or doesn’t encourage you to climb the corporate ladder.
He loves spanking, choking or violent intimate moments when making out.
Sometimes we refuse to see how bad something is until it completely destroys us.
Never let someone who contributes so little to a relationship control so much of it.
