These men would’ve killed these mothers too, had they stood in the way.
When people are in this state of mind, they will do whatever they can to get rid of whatever stands in their way of abusing their victim. You can say these women should’ve left before it got to this point, I know it’s easy to say. I’ve been in two physically and emotionally abusive relationships, and I stayed for three years.
Not that this is in any way near beating a child, but one of my exes used to beat our dogs until they peed themselves. I was scared to stop him because he would’ve hit me too.
After I broke up with this guy, he would come to my work and refuse to leave until I talked to him. He once showed up outside of my house and I caught him looking in my blinds. He was NOT easy to get away from.
These relationships are not easy to get out of, to deal with, to live through.
I understand that it’s a hard thing to understand until you’ve been in one-for me it’s hard to understand now why I ever stayed, but judging abused and broken women is not what we should be doing, especially when we refuse to help them in the first place.
