Do all abusive relationships follow the same patterns and arcs?

Do all abusive relationships follow the same patterns and arcs?

as a Black Woman my abusive relationship with White America feels very similar to the abusive marriage i was in.

the unreasonable and unattainable standards appearance and behavior for acceptance and affection

excuses for double standards and lack of equality

justification and rationalizations of poor treatment, violence and abuse

demands for peace and forgiveness that are really demanding silence and acquiescence as well as approval and acceptance of mistreatment
