Re: White Ribbon Day

A healthy relationship would be a relationship where both people are in it for the sake of love and wanting to be together. Both people would have the right to leave at any time for whatever reason. I believe that mutual respect, honesty and trust are big factors in a relationship as well as loyalty. Having fun is also great too! Even if you don't have the same/similar interests or hobbies, having similar values would be important.

Re: White Ribbon Day

If you were to describe a healthy relationship, free from any form of domestic violence, what would that be like?

I think I would describe a relationship where both partners communicate well, allow each other to be their own person, feel safe and respect each other.

dreamer: I love that! Independent but still a couple. Awesome. Being OK to disagree sometimes is so important - you shouldn't be afraid to say anything just because you think your partner won't agree. You need to be comfortable to say things they might not agree with.

I think a relationship with clear, open and sincere communication is what makes a relationship healthy. No matter how caring either party is, if they're not communicating openly, the relationship isn't healthy.

Statistics show that over 90% of domestic incidents involve a male as the perpetrator. What are some of the positive roles that men can play in ending domestic violence?
