Not turning into my parents

Looking to hear from people who are in this situation: You grew up in a dysfunctional or otherwise abusive family. As an adult you got married or are in a relationship and you’re happy together. You don’t feel you are repeating the abusive patterns you grew up with. How did you do it? How old were you when you had your first non-abusive relationship? Do you have children? What’s that been like?
