I have read that a lot of women have abusive boyfriends or husbands. Do the women know their men are abusers? How come these women date or marry good men who treat them well?

Oh boy, is this a question.
Okay. The majority of the time, women DO NOT realize that they're getting into relationships with abusers/potential abusers.
You know that saying thing, "If you put a frog into a pot of boiling water, it'll jump out, but if you put a frog into a pot of regular water and slowly turn up the heat, it'll boil to death"?
Yeah. That's an abusive relationship. Women don't purposefully get into them. They aren't fun, they aren't healthy, and 98% of the time women have no clue until it's too late, until they're getting beaten up and raped and all sorts of shit is happening to them and then people ask them "Why haven't you left yet?" as if it's their fault.
They don't realize what's happening until they're too scared of their abuser to do anything.
There are a few women who grew up in abusive households and then date/marry into them cos that's all they've ever known, but that's not the majority of women.
It' just something that sucks, but it happens. Nobody wants to talk about it cos it's humiliating and painful and it hurts to think about, just like rape.0
