I want to say this will NOT turn into a bashing of men. If it gets ugly I will delete the whole thing. Be civil and kind, you don't know what others have been through.
My ex-husband use to hit me all the time. When we got divorced I refused to be with a man who felt I could become his "human punching bag" whenever he got mad. Even if it wasn't "my fault". Today I went to visit a friend who has been sick. When I asked her how she was feeling she broke into tears. I think I am going to leave my husband. She told me he choked her yesterday and is calling her and her boys awful names. We are from the same unit and our guys just got home from a year long deployment. So, when she told me this, I had to tell my hubby, who had to tell her hubby's SGT. Which meant her hubby went to see the 1SGT. Long story short, everyone who needs to know, knows. He will be counseled and watched over the next few days. But, why do men feel they can hurt us when they get angry? I realize that women can be the abuser also, but right now we are talking about men. Any thoughts? Please keep it nice.
Why do women stay with men who hit them? They are both getting something out of the relationship. Men who need to feel powerful hit people who won't hurt them back.
