|What are the warning signs of an abuser?|
|Although no one can fully predict whether or not a relationship will turn out to be abusive, some warning signs do exist. For more information see our Red Flags resource.|
|How can I help my friend (family, etc.) who is in an abusive relationship?|
|If you suspect that someone you know is in an abusive relationship, there are many things that you can do to help. Keep supporting that person, even if you feel that she does not want help. Making the decision to get help and possibly leave the relationship is a process that takes time. For more information see our What Can I Do to Help? resource.
|Why don't victims just leave?|
|Although many victims do leave their partners who abuse, there are many potential consequences that make the decision to leave a difficult one to make. These factors can be emotional, physical, cultural, or financial. For more information see our Why Leaving Isn't Easy resource.|
