''Many poets have said that love asks nothing, but I submit to you today that love demands everything."— Judge Donna Hitchens, Superior Court, Valentine’s Day, 1991

I ’ll admit it. I’m a quote person. I’ll read a great quote and immediately write it down and either hang it on a wall somewhere, tuck it in a notebook or write it in big bright letters on the side of an old pair of tennis shoes. No joke.

So, when I read the above quote, I grabbed the nearest scrap of paper and wrote with great flourish. And, after reading it again a few days ago, I thought: ‘This will be perfect for our relationship section.’ Because, whoever said love solves everything really didn’t know what they were talking about. Other factors almost always come into play. You know: reality.

For some, relationships are unhealthy, as in the case of domestic violence. Their partners verbally, emotionally and physically abuse them. Abusers try to control their partners through physical violence and other forms of abuse. This unhealthy factor constantly divides and diminishes strength and self esteem. The domestic violence reports in police logs in any city have an underlying concern — fear. The women in the reports voice the fear that their partners will retaliate by killing them or hurting them more if they file charges.
