  • I'm sorry to say this but women that stay, are visually showing their kids that this is acceptable, that it's ok, that it's what adults, couples do and that's so sad. No one deserves to be hit, hurt with hands or words. You had your reasons for staying, and these two females you're talking about, have theirs and none of them are the right reasons.
    I'd have to tell my child that they can't live with me as long as they're that way, that I lived that life before and will not live it again.
    I'm curious about the fire tho..... ?????

  • This is a question I can relate to. These men do something to your mind and you actually believe that they are the only ones out there for you and you really do need them. It isn't until you reach your breaking point that you realize you are worth more than what is happening to you. It took me 8 years of black eyes and bruises before I finally left. Hopefully I left early enough and my daughter won't follow those footsteps. I am now married to a wonderful man who loves my kids as his own and he doesn't hit. We've been together for 7 years!!

  • Excuse me I am both educated and verbally abused. I work and my SO takes my check and controls my life. I would have left but I need to be in this state for my disabled child. I have tried to leave for three years and I gave up. He is a big intimidating man and if I take money from him even if it is my own he goes on telling me how he can't trust me and I stole from him. As for my children I don't want them to see that and I rather just be compliant then let there lives get disrupted. I have gone to a lawyer, weave, and even just filing for a free lawyer. They couldn't remedy my situation so I stayed for my disabled son.
