stay or go?
Id like to ask something that may Sound silly but Seems to be stuck in my mind.
in a relationship, Where a Couple fight alot and really treat each other With disrespect by means of rottn atitudes and things they say, how does one Know to stay or go?
I mean, No one Cheats or smacks or gets violent, Just Yell insult and be mean.
You have never felt butterflies for this Person and have learnt to love your Partner.
When do You decide its enough trying and enough understanding and enough remaining calm and focus on not strangling Your Partner ? I Know not all relationsnips are smooth sailing but I dont Know when to give up or move on or Just stay and live life like this ?

Hi Belinda,
Aren't you actually decribing psycvhological abuse and violence, and a pairing hat doesn't sound as though it really brings any joy to anyone ? By staying, what would you actually be saving or promoting ? By leaving, what would you lose ?
Anyway merely staying, for more of the same, doesn't help anyone ; the only point in staying in a troubled relationship is if you both get sincerely involved in couples counselling to have some chance of actually improving the situation. Just hoping isn't enough
