What is worse? Being in a physically abusive relationship or being constantly cheated on?


I agree that both are bad but what would you view as a worse "pain" (obviously not physical pain but heartbreak or hurt). Being in a physically abusive relationship with a otherwise faithful partner Or being in a physically affectionate relationship with a promiscuous partner who had numerous affairs or at least one ongoing affair while you were together (so not one one night stand mistake - constant cheating)?

    Very true. i think though there are stuff that holds us back from "moving on quickly" - considering the kids, financial issues, second chances etc. Making it out, I know how hard it is but I do acknowledge that it is possible. Yes YOU CAN DO BETTER

    "People treat us how WE ALLOW them to treat us."(anonymous) Some people mistreat everyone!:)

    Seriously it's not so much about (them) as much as it is (us choosing not to spend time) with those we dislike.

    No one is "stuck" with anyone.

    That is absolutely true. Having experienced both I know for a fact it's not as easy as most think to just "leave or that you shouldn't tolerate it". It is a lot harder and complex and I think no-one can understand or judge unless they've been there

    Yes, I agree. It's also emotional abuse and manipulation that keeps you there. You get convinced that things will change. You get convinced that it's your fault too... Ultimately UNTIL YOU break away you can never be free

    Having experienced both, I don't see it as offensive. I stayed through physical abuse finding ways to justify it. But for me cheating was the ultimate betrayal leading to my divorce. I saw that over the abuse as my husband saying he did not love me

    That is exactly the case! It's sad to think that you could be in a relationship where you think that you are loved only to find out that not only were you cheated on but you now have a lifelong disease to deal with as a constant reminder
