Moving, frightening. I’ve always wondered why women stay with husbands who abuse them, but it isn’t just women. However the sight of a woman with a blackened eye and a few teeth knocked out sobbing “but I love him!” I will never understand.

For him to be unfaithful right in front of you, that seems so extreme. I know that’s worst but the smoking and drinking would have driven me away sooner.

Must ave been horribly painful. I’ll never understand how we endure so much pain without dying.
