My boyfriend hit me the other day for the first time and I am confused. He apologized and everything and has been on his best behavior since but I can't help but flash back to all those shows I saw on TV where the woman was beat constantly by her man and it always started off just like this, him being sorry and her trying to forgive him but they always went back to the hitting,.
I'm afraid my man will do the same. Should I leave him or stay?
I'm not sure of the circumstances behind him hitting you but there is never an excuse for him putting his hands on you in a violent manner. With that said, if he has been on his best behavior then I would just put him on notice. If he ever even THINKS about putting his hands on you...RUN for the door. Do not look back.
Best of luck.
