Cannot tell if he is an abuser

Last week we asked readers to come up with suggestions on how we can stop violence against women.

Last week we asked readers to come up with suggestions on how we can stop violence against women.

Tasnim Langry responded and had this to say:

"I became a mother five months ago to a beautiful baby boy. Sitting and looking back at all the failed relationships I have had to endure, including the one with his emotionally abusive father, I realised there is no way of determining whether you are going to be abused when you first start off in that relationship.

The fairy tale ends when he knows that you are truly in love with him and can't really live without him.

You could be the most intelligent person or the silliest... there is no way to know if he will turn psycho.

I believe that ending violence against women is something that every community in this country needs to address.

What should we do to stop violence against women? Send your suggestions to:
