When dating women, men should be weighing the positive qualities against the baggage. Athough it is not her fault, a woman that has been sexually or physically abused is damaged material.
The likely of having a successful relationship is drastically reduced against their favor.
This type of abuse causes too much psychological trauma that will manifest itself in many forms in the relationship. For example, sever anger, mistrust, intimacy issues, and a disinterest in sex. All of these are the worst ingredients for a successful marriage.
To have a relationship that will last, men need women that have the least amount of issues or at least qualities men know they can live with.

I don't think I would want to be in a relationship with someone who has gone through that. From what I hear and see, that kind of abuse can really affect someone mentally - certainly not in a good way either. That also doesn't mean I'd cut that person off completely. I think focusing on themselves should be their main concern.
