saving an abusive relationship

Can abusive relationships, especially physical or sexually abusive, be saved? They stop being abusive and both partners become equals that live happily together, not one partner continuing dominance over the other or both at each other's throats. Is there any hope? Any real life examples or couples putting abuse behind them?

  1. I think abusive relationships go out of control. I do not think a relationship like that can be saved. It may only lead to a compromise where the partners stay together and lead a mechanical life. But yeah, I do think that in some cases it is possible if the couples realise their own mistakes and go for a reconciliation. If only they are able to realise their own mistakes instead of blaming the other  only then the relationship may be saved.*p*
