Default Partner's Abusive Partner

If your partner has an abusive partner, then YOU are in an abusive relationship also, because a polyamorous relationship is a relationship between all the people in the respective relationships.

When a father comes home and beats his wife in front of his children, those children are being abused whether or not he's hitting them. Seeing someone you love get abused hurts you, and so you share the abuse.
