Have you ever been in an abusive relationship?

If so, if you didn't have any children and someone offered you a place to stay, would you have gone?

What if you were deeply religious and felt as if God would look down on you because you were getting a divorce, but your husband cheats on you, lies and hits you, what could someone say to convince you to leave?

  • Yes I have and we did have a child I left before she turned 1... I honestly think I would have stayed in the situation longer... as bad as it was.. if it wasn't for my daughter. I don't think there's anything you can say or do to convince someone to get out of an abusive relationship. All you can do is be there for them and let them know you are willing to help when they decide to take the first step and leave.
