If the abuse continues - you cannot make the relationship work. You both need to get counseling, separate and together. If the abuse doesn't stop, you need to get out of the relationship. It will probably be a long hard "journey", but if you are both willing to work on it, you will make it through. "What are ways that the abuser and abusee can make the relationship work after confronting the abuse?" Open & Honest discussion.
yes, if it repeats often that is Domestic-Violence.
Yes you can. Sometimes the chemistry of two people just doesn't mix any longer or some people simply have too high of an expectation re love (they think the magic lasts forever.) In addition, throughout a relationship the specific "type" of love changes. What is often referred to as "young love" is not age specific to the individuals, but refers to the age of the relationship. This is essentially the "getting to know you" phase in which you find yourself wanting to spend as much time as possible with the person. Moreover, this is the phase in which the majority of those "butterfly" feelings and yes, passionate thoughts, occur. It is a fantastic time in a relationship, however, it often does not last more than one or two years. One of the biggest mistakes made by couples is the misconception that the way the relationship is during those first two years and how intense those feelings are will never stop. Most of the time, the "young love" stage is replaced with a sense of mutal respect, caring, and compassion. This is not to imply all of the feelings during the "young love" stage are gone, but that they have simply grown into a stronger love that goes beyond simply the physical relationship. Love has never been defined since the world began. Each person has an opinion as to what love is. When we say the word "love" we almost expect perfection and that just isn't going to happen because no one is perfect. When young and we fall in love the world around us explodes into a thousand colored lights, but when we get to know each other then a new type of love enters. There should be a feeling of missing that person when they aren't around, loyalty, honesty and wanting to make each other as happy as possible and that doesn't always include gift giving or trying to constantly impress the other mate. Love is comfort and a feeling of being safe.
I take it you don't find him physically attractive, but are in love with his personality. What else could it be?
You are either in love or you're not. There is no fence-sitting on this subject. Then again, he could be abusing you and you love him, but don't fancy him. You didn't really go into detail. Either way, it's not love if you don't fancy him. No in between here.
