As a divorce recovery expert, I have dealt with similar situations.Often, people -- especially churchgoers -- assume domestic violence does not happen within committed Christian relationships. After 20 years of observing destructive relationships, I have discovered twelve traits that are most often exhibited by abusers.Men can be abused by women, but the victims are predominately female.Initially, he showers his woman with praise, adoration, and attention.His courtship is sweet and intense filled with phrases such as, “I can’t live without you.” He quickly pushes for an exclusive relationship or engagement.
“I know you are looking at him.” The irony is that he often is the one who is cheating. He knows how to detect your weak spots, and he uses your vulnerability and past pain to his advantage.“You were abused as a kid because you are so ugly.” He wants to know where you are going and who you are with at all times.He may check the mileage on your car or follow you to the grocery store.He often refuses to allow you to work because you might “meet someone.” His poor choices are everyone else’s fault.When he loses his job, gets into a fight, or a business deal falls through, it’s always because of the other person. “You make me hit you.” The whole world revolves around him.
