Okay so I’ll start with a bit of background. We have been together around 18 months and living together 6 months. We had got to the point where arguing was normal and throwing insults at each other was a part of that, I tried to convince him we needed to talk to somebody but he is very private. Anyway, we were going on holiday to Florida and argued the day before (a big one) we went anyway and tried to make the most of it however half way through we had a row while I was driving and he ended up punching me and breaking my nose. After much emotional talk and upset we decided to try make the most of the last week and then go our separate ways when we got home. However during that last week he was perfect, he tried so hard and it showed. Now we are home obviously my family are telling me to go nowhere near him and he blames them for us not being together. I’m torn, I don’t know wether this was as he says the wake up call for him and he is a changed man or I am being a complete dummy and just believing what I want to hear to make our relationship work. Can people change? Can his words be true?
