relate this to the Micheal vick story below!

THE ABUSIVE MARRIAGE: "It's as if society expects abused women to think and act as mentally healthy, stable human beings, while scoffing at what could possibly be wrong with such a person who would stay in an abusive relationship. She's already fully aware that no one understands her and that she is judged and ostracized. Yet, she is expected to courageously and confidently embark upon a whole new life for herself in a society which looks down their noses at her, whispers and laughs behind her back, and avoids contact with her as if she has the plague.

In a society so technically advanced, educated and so concerned with Constitutional Rights and 'political-correctness', we should be ashamed that our women and children are still treated just a little less than human. Oh, we hear plenty talk about stopping child abuse, but when an instance is reported, rarely is anything done, and nothing is heard, until the child is dead. And women who find themselves in abusive relationships are always blamed by the abuser, and then blamed by society for not 'just leaving', judged by those who have no idea what they would do in the same situation. It's so easy to say I would do this or I would do that, but... until the thing has actually happened to you, you do not know what you would do."
