#14: It is Never Ok
The things that people consider to be normal and acceptable in a relationship are often dictated by what they saw growing up or what they have become accustomed to. And whilst no one has the right to say if a particular thing in a relationship is normal or not, there are some things that are universally understood as bad.
We just want to make one thing clear; it is never ok to physically, verbally, or emotionally abuse anyone. The fact that this couple admitted to being physically abusive with one another and were trying to be ok with it is beyond understanding. You don’t ever have to be ok with abuse.
