5 Signs To Know You Are In An Abusive Relationship by Yuneek(f): 12:45pm On Sep 26, 2018

Relationships should be beautiful right? Like something that should have a happy ending. Although it is practically impossible for all relationships to end on a rosy tone.

Sometimes, we stay in abusive relationships without even having an iota of idea that we are in one. You know what they say about love being blind and (deaf and dumb) perhaps.

But it is usually safer if we spot that we are actually in an abusive relationship and take a step either to leave to live or stay let it see the end of us (you shouldn't be surprised to hear that a lot of people have died as a result of abuse, yeah?).

Abuse isn't only physical (like when he/she turns you into a punching bag and your home feels like a boxing ring). Abuse could come in form of emotional, verbal, or even sexual abuse).

Okay, let's say we are focusing on married people here (hello single fam, take a chill pill, Y'all will get there someday).

Did you even know that there is a thing called marital rape? Like a scenario where a husband rapes his wife and vice versa? No, it is rape when the sex is not mutual.

Oh! before I bore you with long talks, let me just share with you 7 critical signs that point to the fact that you are in an abusive relationship:


As much as we have heard that jealousy is healthy for relationships, some are highly unhealthy and should be watched, lest it degenerates to something deadly.


When a partner guilt-trips you into believing that every fault of the relationship is all your making, dearie, that is a glaring sign that you are in an abusive relationship.

Awkward Sex

Sex is meant to be enjoyed yeah? Even though some people love to be rough-handled in bed, some signs from your partner might not be geared towards giving you the maximum pleasure you desire. It could be a sign that you are being abused, but well, what do I know. I gave up on the fight when I heard a girl say she only gets in the mood to have sex when her man hits her so hard. Not the regular sex-kinda hit. She meant something like some serious hot slaps here and there, hahaha. To each his own after all.
