As we know domestic violence is an issue that many people face in our country. It can be against females or males of any ages or economic level. It can happen in the home or the community.
How can you tell if you are in a healthy relationship? If the person you are with is supportive of you, values your opinion – even if they do not agree, shares their feelings openly, will compromise and understands your separate interests you are most likely in a healthy relationship.
However, if the person you are with tries to control who you see, what you wear, where you go; tries to keep you away from your loved ones; constantly demeaning you; is threatening to you or your family and breaks things you are not in a healthy relationship.
