When Having An Argument With A Significant Other Turns Into Violence

When having an argument with a significant other turns into violence

Recently, I had a conversation with a friend who told me that she and her boyfriend got into a big argument over religion.

She went on to convey that she became so offended by her boyfriend mocking her religion, she ended up punching him in the face, and then she broke up with him.

I was stunned as I listened in horror to her story.

At the time, she felt that her actions were justified because her then boyfriend had said hurtful things that disrespected her religious beliefs.

But, after my response to her violent act, she felt remorse.

I had told her that although her anger was valid for feeling disrespected, her reaction was unacceptable. Because the same way she decided to physically attack her then boyfriend, his calling the cops on her would have been valid as well.

I went on to propose the rhetorical question by asking her, if the ex-boyfriend had, indeed, called the cops on her and pressed charges, would hitting him have really been worth her ruining her life over?

That said, to women who find themselves angry to the point of violence, choose to remove yourselves from negative spaces. I know this is easier said than done, but having your freedom taken from you, is by far, worse than making the smart choice by walking away.

What are some of the techniques you have used to manage your anger during a heated argument with your significant other?
