Please, treat your partner as you would like your mum or sister to be treated. Would you want them to cry themselves to sleep at night because of the hurtful things you have said or done? Don't belittle her in anyway, verbal abuse is just the same as physical abuse, my abuse was both.
I have tried to teach my son how to respect the females around him and the ones that may be in his future. I hope that he sees the right and wrong in how I was treated, He once said to me when he was 13 years old that isn't how a man treats his family.
