I've never understood why a woman continues to stay with an abusive man. Why do they call the police and then drop the charges because "she loves him"? I have never had a man raise his hand to me. All it would take is one time and he would be my man no more. Even if they have no other family to go to, there are battered womens shelters. Can someone explain why any one would just sit back and take this?Answer Question

To the OP, if you really want to know, women who settle for less than they deserve (and NO ONE deserves abuse) often suffer for incredibly deep-seated self-esteem/self-worth issues. They have usually grown up surrounded by abuse and dysfunction and regardless of how educated, self sufficient, and even confident they may be in other aspects of thier lives they essentially seek out what they feel they deserve. There are shelters and most communities have some resources for women fleeing an abusive relationship but, going to a shelter especially when children are involved can be a frightening proposition.
It is easy to say what one would do in that situation, or for some who have and left maybe is was easy; but for some woemn it's not they need our support and encouragement.
