Understanding if it's abuse

Is my relationship abusive?

Relationships exist on a spectrum, and it can sometimes be hard to gauge when interactions go from healthy to unhealthy (or even abusive).

The following are warning signs to look for, which can be triggering and upsetting to read:

  • Checking your phone, email, or social media accounts without your permission
  • Putting you down frequently, especially in front of others
  • Isolating you from friends or family (physically, financially, or emotionally)
  • Extreme jealousy or insecurity
  • Explosive outbursts, temper, or mood swings
  • Any form of physical harm
  • Possessiveness or controlling behavior
  • Pressuring you or forcing you to have sex

Do any of these warning signs apply to your relationship? If you want to understand if your relationship is healthy, take the Love is Respect quiz, “Is My Relationship Healthy?”
