Being in an abusive relationship can have many effects on abusers.

While abusers gain power and control within their abusive relationships, they may lose control in other areas while focusing all of their time and attention on their partners.
By learning and practicing abusive behaviors, abusers risk the opportunity to create and experience healthy, productive relationships.

Abusers may lose respect and relationships with friends or family members. They may have lower grades or be removed from school. They may lose their jobs and opportunity for future employment.

Ultimately, abusers are at risk of seriously hurting another person, gaining a criminal record, and losing their freedom and future.
