Re: Happy & healthy relationships

I think there'd have to be issues with respect, trust and consideration. Would definitely be questioning what was important to that person. I'd almost go as far to suggest that maybe real caring love was missing from the relationship. If you truly care about someone you don't stop them from being the person they are or try to make them do, act etc any differently

I think it is great to talk about our relationships - and great to set examples of ones we think a healthy and also great to speak up about your own and to notice whether you think it is healthy/respectful and why Smiley Happy

Have a go at this Truth/Myth:

Unhealthy relationships become abusive. Are these sorts of relationships common or uncommon in Australia? What makes you think so?

I think it is also important to be aware of people's body language, if you get a chance to look at the Love Control youtube link, you may notice the guy uses his body to block his partner in, on transport and at the bar/pub. It happens when he has his legs up. Body language can also make us feel controlled and disrespected - depending on the context and if it is a regular thing that occurs in the relationship.

Hmm, abusive I would say yes but abuse comes in a number of forms, mentally, emotionally, physically etc. I think they are common in Australia I just think some people are too scared to talk about it. I think so because there are a number of people I have spoken to who have been abused or are in unhealthy relationships. Am I wrong??

Wow that is hard. I don't think they would always become abusive, but I'm not sure. I would like to think these relationships are uncommon in Australia but I wouldn't really know.
