Would you give your partner a second chance after he hit you once? In my opinion men that do that don't deserve a second chance, because if you do it once it means you can do it twice or never stop doing it.. If it happened to you before don't let that happen more than one time because many time women are the ones that let men hit us.. let them love us and respect us..

I have been in the situation of staying with a man that hit me.Sure he was apologetic-crying like a baby and i was sucked in.Ultimately,me staying was like saying it was OK to treat me like that.Never again.

No absolutely not. no way if he hit you once he will undoubtedly hit you again. he will feel he is entitled to do this again. Love does not mean pain. not in any way. If my husband had hit me once that would be it. I would file for divorce and get out of there at once. We have to respect ourselves as women and know we do not ever deserve to be hit or abused verbally. Love means respect also.

i also believe that once a cheat always a cheat. if you give them second chance, where is the gurantee taht person will not hit you again? its better not to let taht happen once again when you are already hit by that person.

No way. One strike and he's out of here. No one deserves that, for any reason. It's like you said, if they do it once they may do it again. If they're going to try and 'get better' or 'change' then let them do it on someone else's time, with them taking the risk. I think everyone deserves better than that.

No, I am not amenable to physical abuse. I pity those women are into that situation. It's good that me and hubby have not been into that situation. We have some disagreement and quarrel but he never hit me or hurt me physically.

No, if my bf ever hit me id leave right then and there and never go back. Ive had many friends go thru that and I would never put myself in a position like that.
