I know a girl who has been in an abusive relationship for nearly fifteen years now. It started with constant belittling and the occasional backhand then progressively got worse. Yet she stayed with him. Finally, last year she was given a choice, her mate or her child. She chose her mate. Her child now lives in foster care. She is allowed one supervised visit per week in a room behind mirrored glass. Yet she still refuses to see the error in her choices.
