Warning Signs for Young Christian Women

Warning Signs for Young Women

Did you know that abuse happens in Christian relationships at the same rate as non-Christian relationships? Sometimes young women think that if they date and marry a Christian man, he will be “safe” but that is not statistically true.

Did you know that abuse takes many forms? Here are some warning signs:

  • Discouraging you from seeing friends or pursuing your own interests
  • Pushing sexual activity beyond your comfort level
  • Being jealous of other relationships
  • Withdrawing and being emotionally cold and distant
  • Attacking your ideas and opinions
  • Using Scripture against you
  • Belittling your faith or your beliefs
  • Using prayer to berate or lecture you
  • Saying you are “crazy”
  • Intimidating you
  • Throwing things
  • Driving recklessly or angrily with you in the car
  • Putting you down or calling you names
  • Commenting about your weight
  • Belittling you, making fun of you, being sarcastic

If you have experienced any of these abusive or controlling behaviours from your partner, be concerned and talk to someone you can trust. For more information, keep reading this website.
