So my girlfriend of two years and I were in a fight the other day. All the sudden it escalated and we were yelling at each other, and then I said something I probably shouldn't have said about her sister. And for saying that, she pushed me backward and then slapped me. Right after, I was so angry turned around and slammed the wall and yelled "Shit Caroline." And she then started crying and apologizing. And put her arms around me and tried to hug me but, I just left. Now, I’m wondering if I should forgive her. She keeps calling me and saying sorry, it’s been two days. I don’t know if I should break up with her or not. What do y’all think?
Thanks to everyone for their opinions. I think I may stay with her even though I know some of tall might disagree. I've just been talking with people I know in real life and I think everyone is telling me to give her one more chance, which I think is fair. So thanks a lot y'all.
And by the way I called her sister a whore cause some of y'all were wondering. I know it's wrong to call someone that, but it's a little better and more justified if you know her sister.
I don't believe in violence, I don't support her, but I also don't think you should mess with family. I don't know how would be my reaction if somebody said something nasty about my sister. Why didn't you share what you said so we can give an opinion?
Usually I would say end it. But I think you done well in making a point that you will not tolerate that kinda shit. I'd say give her a final chance. People make stupid decisions and can learn from them. This might be a complete one off.
If she is violent once, she will probably do it again. I'm not saying she has no right to be angry over you saying something about her sister. However, if she can hit you over that, just imagine other fights. I'm sure you shouldn't have said whatever it was about her sister, but she could have expressed her anger in other ways. There was absolutely no reason for her to hit you. I hate girls who think it's okay to hit their boyfriends just because they're female.
Since you said something you probably shouldn't say about her sister, I think a slap is okay, to snap you out of it. Forgive her, even though i would say that she should be the one to forgive you, because a slap is nothing if you said something you shouldn't especially about family.
I just saw this Now and without even reading your own Update, my Own as a wise ol owl Is: Stay with her, work it out, kiss and make Up... We all do and say things in the Heat of the Heart. Good luck. xx
She's physically abusive. If she can't keep her hands to herself what's going to happen if you have kids and she hits you in front of your kid? You been with her for 2 years. I say get out while you can
I'm sorry to hear about you and your girlfriend. I believe you should not break up with her. I think the thing you said about her sister hurts her just like you physically slap at her. That's why she reacts that way (I believe this happen for the first time in 2 years... if so, we can say she's normally not a violent person). Ask yourself if you still love her. If you do, my advice is to accept her apology and try to build your relationship to be stronger in the future. Good luck!
I'd break up with her if I were you. However, if you value your relationship a lot and if you're eager to forgive her, give it one more try. It's entirely up to you.
