Respecting your partner means that you take into account your partner’s feelings, wishes and rights.
If you respect your partner, you show that you are positive about him or her. It means you also respect your partner’s limits. 

If your partner does not try to respect you, you have to decide what you want to do. You decide what your limits are. You can also ask for professional help.
