Why Do People Abuse?

Domestic violence and abuse stem from a desire to gain and maintain power and control over an intimate partner. Abusive people believe they have the right to control and restrict their partners, and they may enjoy the feeling that exerting power gives them. They often believe that their own feelings and needs should be the priority in their relationships, so they use abusive tactics to dismantle equality and make their partners feel less valuable and deserving of respect in the relationship. Abuse is a learned behavior. Sometimes people see it in their own families. Other times they learn it from friends or popular culture.

People abuse their partners because they believe they have the right to control the an abusive relationship, it's hard to imagine why someone would stay.
