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 relationship0
