When I started dating my ex we sometimes talked about our past relationships and he told me how he beat his exes. I was surprised though but thought it won’t happen to me. Apparently I thought I was God’s gift to him😂😂😂. When the honeymoon phase simmered and we got BK to the real world. I became a punching bag. I’ve left him though. I didn’t have the mind to get him arrested for battering .Do abusive people change or is that how they are wired?
