What To Do About An Abusive Partner
In our previous post, we outlined a few of the common signs of cheating. In many instances, cheating is just one aspect of the relationship. Some relationships are verbally and/or physically abusive. Still more are emotionally abusive in that you are manipulated and challenged strongly to keep you within boundaries that are comfortable for the abuser.
Alienating you from your family, friends, and other loved ones is one common ploy used to give an abuser a safety net away from prying eyes. It can feel shameful and embarrassing to learn that you have been wrong after years of abuse and manipulation into being the abuser’s biggest defender to your friends and family.
Too many people remain in a bad situation feeling their options are limited. We specialize in these difficult situations and we are happy to discuss this with you in private, confidentially, for free and with no obligation. Sometimes just hearing ideas and real-world solutions that work can be uplifting.
We can assist you if it will help, and we can provide you with a short list of attorneys who are specialists in Family Law, for free and with no obligation to use our services, or theirs. The information you can avail yourself of without doing anything anyone will learn about, can be very empowering. If your biggest fear is that seeing an attorney will invite World War Three and getting a divorce, do not worry, nothing can be farther from the truth. Knowledge is empowering.
You and your mate may have a very toxic--even contentious--relationship when it comes to discussing matters of the heart, finances, family, etc. If you are in a relationship that is unhealthy, maybe you do not need proof of an affair to justify doing the right thing for your sanity, safety, and happiness. It is typical for the male in a dysfunctional relationship to be controlling, aggressive and condescending, as well as overly critical and insulting. This is a sign of weakness or fear on their part as they lack the tools or courage to do the right thing. Narcissistic people will threaten you with custody issues, taking the kids away, financial ruin, etc. Does this sound familiar? It’s happening to keep you off-balance and to shred your confidence.
These abusers are almost always wrong and fear nothing more than the surprise you can deliver using a talented private eye and a strong divorce attorney. We can assist you in the planning and implementation necessary to come out on top and protect everything you value.
These environments can easily last for years, eroding the self-esteem of the person being manipulated or otherwise abused. When you ask a cheater to admit to cheating, you cannot expect an honest answer. You should never threaten a person in this type of situation with leaving them, divorce, hiring an attorney or private investigator or taking the children away from them. This can be counterproductive and even put you in harm’s way.
Don’t continue to be a victim. You can find out the truth and take control of your life.
