Ladies, I really enjoy CM (most of the time) I can identify a lot of times, I'm divorced, remarried. I have exhusband issues, ex wife issues and a big blended family. I am no where near perfect. And I never pretend I am. But, day after day I read about women who post stories about men who cheat, abuse, humiliate and are all around shitty husbands/boyfriends/fathers. These girls I feel awful for. But what I'd like to know is..... Why do most of these girls have no self respect? Why do women think its ok to get involved with men who have numerous children with numerous women? DO they REALLY THINK THEY ARE GIING TO CHANGE? And why do they girls continue to have babies when no one is working? Or they have no place to live? Stop having children you can't afford. Stop being with men that treat you like shit. Try getting married to a decent man who loves you BEFORE you have 5 kids. Finish school, stand on your own feet and HAVE SOME FREAKIN SELF RESPECT. Or we will have daughters and sons who think it is okay to live like this.

I definitely did! I thank God every day. I am a very, very lucky woman.

Same here. Glad you found your happiness.

I can't speak for anyone else, but when I was younger, I didn't have any self-respect, yet I never let a man hit me. Some had tried, but I left. I have known many abused women and not all of them lacked self-respect. They stayed because they were committed, they stayed because they thought they could help, they stayed because they loved them. Everyone has their own reasons.



Self-respect isn't always easy to come by. My husband had a hell of a time helping me gain some, but I was one od the few fortunate women who got her Prince after all her toads.

Ten don't post that you want to have a 5 th baby with your abusive jobless boyfriend. And you won't be called stupid. I'm entitled to my opinion. And that's why I wrote the post.

1 mom liked this

I tend to agree..though I was one of those stupid ones, I stayed with a man who had no respect for me and abused me and I took it for 2 reasons. 1. I was scared to leave and 2. because I was stupid...after 8 years I left and worked on myself and bettering things for my children, now married to a wonderful man who respects me and if anything were to ever happen I know I can care for my children on my own and everyone would be okay

Hey, I was in the same boat. And I did exactly what you did. We should be very proud of ourselves. :). My girls tell me all the time how proud they are of me. Life is never too short to do the right thing. :)
