Dear Poll: Has an Argument Ever Turned Violent?

I'm sure you've all heard by now that Chris Brown was involved in the assault of an unidentified woman last night. While we wait for the facts to trickle in, people are speculating that the victim is Chris's girlfriend Rihanna. Since that has yet to be proven, we can just hope this was all a misunderstanding. But I also know that it is possible for an argument between lovers to accidentally get out of control.

Domestic violence is never OK in any relationship, but the saddening truth is that it happens all too frequently. I know this is a very personal question, but ladies, tell me, has an argument with your significant other ever turned to violence?

My mom was horribly abused by her last husband and then years later, by her boyfriend. I still see her death as highly suspicious, even though the police ruled out homicide. My sister's first boyfriend when she was 13 abused her for years. My ex-husband abused me for 14 years. Mentally and physically. I finally escaped him and moved several states away. I still don't feel safe.

I voted "no" on this one because I've never been hit by a guy. However, over the summer I had an argument with a drunk girlfriend escalate to the point violence. So maybe I should have said "yes".

I have hit a partner, and I have been hit by a partner. Thankfully neither have been my current. I made it very clear to my love that I would NEVER strike him unless he deserved it beyond any doubt. But it takes a lot to piss me off to that extent.

Very sadly, yes. I fought back though. Didn't do much good.

Never. Abuse from either a man or woman is not excusable. Period.

No, I've never been hit in anger by anyone. Melo, how can you possibly excuse a man who beat a woman so soundly that she was "in too much pain to be touched"? Hitting a woman is disgusting, and never excusable.

Never been hit but definitely had heard some hurtful things. My brothers/dad/uncles/cousins would kill anyone who thought it was okay to think about laying a hand on me. As far as this CB/Rihanna situation, I think they both played a part.

never, i think all the boys in my life have known if they ever touched me the wrong way and i didn't get the chance to kill them, my dad would take care of that.

yes -- with my first truly serious boyfriend as i was still quite young and impressionable. i'd always been a bitch and kind of a ball breaker, thinking i was tough. but it's an easy thing to go ahead and think before tiny you is actually confronted by a much stronger intimidating male a few years older than you. the violence slowly built up, it started in little ways that i'd brush off -- grabbing my wrist, pinning me against the wall, etc. but after a certain point things tend to go south quickly. it was difficult dealing with being only 17/18 years old. idiotically enough, i was with him a year and a half which sucks but now i'm only better for it. although i do hate his guts for some of the things he did, in a way i don't regret the relationship.

Not with a bf. I've gotten into an argument that has turned violent with my mom, sister, brother, and ex-friend.

Never. And if it ever happens, he'll get his walking orders. My mom slapped me once and cried immediately after doing it. I was 15 and called her a b!tch. I say no one deserves to be hit, but I kinda did deserve it.

I've thrown things, I love to break things when I'm angry, but I never threw something at someone to hurt them. I was never actually hit, I had just broke up with the guy and I was getting stuff from our still apartment and he tried to force himself on me luckily he didn't want me calling the cops. My parents had to finish moving my stuff.

Nope, never. I pity any guy who would have the balls to try it though.

Never. But I have said some verbally violent things to my boyfriend that I regret. That stuff is pretty bad too.

Not physical violence but I had a ex who verbally and psychologically abused me. Usually it was implying I was stupid or saying I needed a nose job.

My boyfriend and I got into such a bad fight (basically him breaking up with me after 2 years without an actual reason) that he got up in my face and started to scream at me. I pushed him away. He has never hit me, but if he did I'd leave for sure.

LoL, everyone gets in a scuffle sometime, whether big or tiny. I'm sure we've all hit someone on the play ground when we were 3 or 4 or something. But anyway, as for hitting a girlfriend or wife. Never have, never ever ever ever will. Never. I don't ever tolerate it. And I won't tolerate it, from myself, family members, children, and not even others. I have negative zero tolerance when it comes to women's abuse, child abuse, rape, and sexual assault.

No...I've never been hit by any ex-boyfriends or my husband because if it did happen it's a given that he'd be picking his teeth up off the ground......

Aww I'm sorry Jeny :( My parents divorced after being together 20 something years so I know this is tough.

Thankfully, no. The most angry action I have seen out of my husband was one time when we were dating and got in a huge fight over the phone, and he hurled his phone at the wall and destroyed it. He called me back on a neighbor's phone and told me what he did. He was embarrassed!

My parents are divorcing after 30 years because my dad pushed my mom down onto the couch.
