Human Rights in Intimate Relationships

The right to share equally with your partner all decisions and responsibilities related to your relationship, children, home and finances.

The right to share equally with your mate in all financial decisions.

The right to grow and explore your potential without feeling guilty, selfish or afraid.

The right to have friendships with both women and men outside your relationship as long as you do not violate the privacy of your relationship with your partner.

The right to express your opinions and have them given the same respect and consideration as those of your mate.

The right to have your emotional, physical and intellectual needs be as important as the needs of your mate.

The right to expect your mate to give at least 50% to resolve difficulties in your relationship.

The right to hold your mate responsible for his or her behaviour rather than assuming that responsibility yourself.

The right to seek professional help with your relationship.

The right NEVER to be physically attacked or psychologically degraded by your mate and the right to terminate the relationship if either occurs.

The right to expect significant behavioural changes rather than apologies and promises from your partner if a single abusive incident occurs.

The right not to blame yourself if the relationship in which you have invested so much love and effort ends.

Id agree whole heartedly with that, I dont tolerate abuse of any kind, for any reason. Nor do I give its totally losing ones honor and becoming a beast.
