Both men and women could be victims, but men and women abuse their partners in different ways. Women are more likely to yell, to threaten by hurting themselves, to pinch, to slap, to scratch, or even kick. Men injure their partner more than women. They are more likely to punch their partners, and they force them to participate in unwanted sexual activity. Violence and abuse affect all kinds of people everyday. It doesn’t matter what race or culture you come from, how much money you have, or if you have a disability. It is most common among women between ages 15 and 54, but it can happen to anybody at any age.

How can you detect boyfriends or suitors who will most likely become wife-beaters and abusers? What traits do they have and why should you avoid them and be wary of them?

Before you decide to commit to a long-term relationship with your boyfriend, pause for a minute and look into your past experiences with him.
