Question:how do you improve an abussive relationship?

Answer:

I can tell you from many, many years of trying to save and improve an abusive relationship. We had children and I truly believed that if I could just show him enough love that he would change his attitude and love me back. After 15 years, I finally walked away. My regret is that I did not do it sooner - I lost out on many years and could have had someone in my life that did love me and who did not feel like they had to hit me to show how much...LEAVE, LEAVE, LEAVE & DO NOT LOOK BACK...GOD LOVES YOU AND YOU ARE PRECIOUS.

Answer:

I hate to say it but, the only way is to LEAVE and LEAVE ASAP. You can't make him/her better and you are too valuable and amazing too be abused by anyone.
