Relationship violence is a pattern of behavior in an intimate relationship that is used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation. Whether you refer to an experience as dating violence, domestic violence, intimate partner violence or relationship violence, all terms mean that one partner has gained more power over time through the use of controlling tactics.

Second, put on your friend hat and listen about their date plans and how it went. No, you don’t have to listen to every detail and if it starts getting Ouchy you have the right to say that it’s Ouchy and move on. I feel that 1) you are friends with your partner so by listening, as a friend, you can see it from a different angle; and 2) you want to share your partner’s experience so you both … Read more
to me double dating second name is hatred,except the male or female involved do it for materialism.beside,is no love. My husband and I were out for our Valentine’s day date a couple weeks ago. We were starving- and lucky for us we had planned to eat at our favorite Seafood Grille. We got a sitter, got all dressed up, and headed over to our destination- ready to have a night to ourselves, enjoy each others company…and frankly, ready to pig out.
In my experiences as a marriage and family counselor I’ve seen that most people are blindsided by stage three. We often project our own illusions, both positive and negative, on to another. When they don’t live up to our projected image we become dismissive and begin looking elsewhere. It’s much more difficult to understand and heal the pain and reconnect when we do more texting than talking. The sound of a voice can provide soothing and healing when the misunderstandings of human interaction get in the way of care and connection.

Teaching a guy how to treat you isn’t about barking orders at him or giving ultimatums. It’s about communicating very clearly what you feel is (and isn’t) acceptable behavior in regards to the way he is treating you. Yes, we are all human, and that human nature is fallen. But might I suggest that Our Lord did not come into the pit to camp there with us but to lift us out of it. Plus, never underestimate the power of the Rosary; it has wrought miracles of chastity before and can still do so.
You aren’t alone. It sounds like yours is not the kind of situation I was speaking of in this HUB. It sounds like you are both busy, he prepared you for this prior to the relationship, and most importantly he’s not making time for friends and hanging out and other things before you proving you are not his priority: this is strictly work related.
Now if I was to blow up his phone with texts and/or calls while he was out with another and not give them a moment’s piece, then that’s jealousy. I’m sabotaging M’s time out and therefore destroying his happy time; let alone … Read more
I think it’s important to address this area because unequally yoked relationships are hindering our walk with God in regards to our friendships, courting, and especially in your dating relationships. Then, you look up and you’re married to this person that you’re completely unyoked with but because you were so focused on leaving the title of being single” behind—you ignored ALL of the warning signs and married this fool who said” he was a Christian. You shouldn’t be rewarding her with back and forth communication like that. It will simply help her move on without you. Exempted from federal income tax under the provisions of Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. My guess is that people have always been that way and the internet isn’t making it any worse, just letting us know about it more easily.
Hi, Melissa. You sound like a girl after my own heart. 😉 I love writing as well – especially about relationships. Yes, I could hang around, try and coax them into it, or just generally refuse to go away until it becomes easier for them to give in – but who wants to do that? That’s like being awarded a relationship … Read more
Not only do you feel pressure to maintain and emotionally support the relationship, but there are also plenty of potential-breakup moments—on behalf of your significant other. I know this, because I have been through it. What you do doesn’t have to be something big, either. In fact, research indicates that even just doing something with the intention of it helping you could be effective. Journaling intentionally is one example of something small that can be really helpful.
My current beau is 42, never been married & no kids. We have been seeing each other for 4 months now. It is long distance, which I have never done before. He has a car & it is about 2-2.5 hours when he drives to me. I do not have a car so it is about 4 hours mass transit for me to go to him. He is a police officer but he works in training academy so his schedule is more stable than your average patrol officer. I am still going to college part time & I have a full time job. We work opposite schedules & do not have same days off. Also my 2 days off from work I spend … Read more
As some of you may have noticed, my posts over the last year have evolved from devotionals into articles about love, marriage, dating and relationships in general.

There is trust and whenever we talk we have so much to share and we also send presents and letters to each other to keep the romance going! our relationship is not based on sex and physical togetherness, its more spiritual and completely based on communication. We talk everyday and always have so much to say!

Here are some of the Greatest Hits” from our panels. While the questions may not seem special to you, the responses we have received from men have been extraordinarily enlightening.
