Why Does My Friend Abuse Their Partner?

There are many reasons why someone might harm their partner:  

  • They believe that they have the right to control the person they are dating.  
  • They grew up in a family where abuse was common.  
  • They experienced abuse in a previous relationship and think it’s normal. 
  • They haven’t learned healthy ways to respond to conflict.

There’s no excuse for abuse – it’s never okay for someone to hurt their partner. If you are crossing your partner’s boundaries or creating harm, talk to a trusted adult.
