What's this symdrome called (abuse)?

I'm reading this book about a woman who's married an abusive man, but she thinks to herself that she ought to be grateful since he's made her wealthy.

  • not sure if battered women's syndrome is really accurate.

    Learned helplessness sounds like an applicable theory. basically the feeling that a person is helpless in aversive situations, that it has lost control, and so it gives up trying

    but i don't know if there is a specific syndrome that applies to the specific situation as opposed to just being a reason why someone would stay in an abusive relationship

  • Even if your relationship makes you miserable, you’re getting something out of it. You attract these type of people because you’re telegraphing the signal.
