My friend just went back to her abusive husband last night, against my advice and the advice of others. She says she loves him still... and I just can't understand. He nearly choked her to death! But now he's saying he was just trying to stop her from leaving, and because he was drunk he "didn't know what he was doing". I told her that's BULLS**T... but she says she can't take the stress of leaving with their 3 kids.
WHY WHY WHY do women make excuses for someone hurting them?

They get conditioned. It's like a child who defends their abusers and then becomes abusers themselves. They're conditioned to accept it as normal. Have you ever read anyone write on here "well I was spanked and I turned out fine" in defense of them spanking their children? It's the same concept. They're conditioned by their abusers to accept it and defend them and their actions.
