Domestic Abuse and Poor Decision MakingPosted: March 6, 2013 | |
my mom stayed married for 11 years to a demon that beat the fuck out of me on a weekly basis and sexually molested me over a brief period (mom left a year later). hell, when i was just over a year i was beaten so badly that my mom left. he SWORE it would never happen again, but she went back. so this article kinda hits home. on a second front, i hear stories like this ALL.THE.TIME. in the military. the fact that she dumped her husband while he was in afghanistan is fucking reprehensible. i’ve never understood women that stay with abusive men- their hamsters are the WORST.
the sad thing is the effect it had on her 2 kids. the children usually are the ones that suffer the most. yet, mom will be painted out as the victim. despite leaving her husband, despite the risk she exposed her children to, depsite deciding to shack up with an ex-con.
and people wonder why i refuse to get married. society will have to forgive me from sheilding myself from the legion of american women just the one mentioned in this article. but what i find particularlly sad, is IF the husband didn’t take her back and filed for divorce; do you think he’d get custody of the kids- EVEN under the argument of infidelity (with an ex-con no less) and endangering their children?
i wouldn’t count on it.
