Relationship Rights & Responsibilities

EVERYONE deserves respect! Respect in a relationship means you treat each other equally and fair. In a healthy relationship you respect the other person’s limits and they respect yours, too. This means listening when someone says no, and NOT pushing someone into something they don’t want to do.

Be The Change: Know What's Ok
 

A healthy relationship is free from all types of violence. Many people think relationship abuse is all about the physical, but there are many different types of abuse.
Some examples are:

  • Telling them what to wear
  • Telling them who they can/can’t hang out with
  • Checking up on them constantly through calls or texts
  • Pressuring them to do things they’re not comfortable with

It’s important to think about the way we want to be treated in a relationship and that we treat others with the same respect. That includes people we date as well as our friends. Sometimes we expect that everyone feels like we do about things. If you make a habit of asking others how they feel in certain situations and really listening to them, you can start to build healthy and happy relationships!
