  • Say it's your fault if he or she hits you, then promises it won't happen again (but it does)?

    Yes No

  • Put you down in public or keep you from contacting family or friends?

    Yes No

  • Throw you down, push, hit, choke, kick, or slap you?

    Yes No

  • Force you to have sex when you don't want to?

    Yes No

Just one "yes" answer means you're involved in an abusive relationship. If so, you're not alone and you have choices.
