Subject: I've experienced this from multiple angles...

I've seen it with my mother and stepfather. There were close to splitting up several times. He was abusive both physically and mentally, to me and her.

Somehow they're still together and he's mellowed, although he's still literally the grumpiest man I have ever known.

My sister's been in one bad relationship after another. In the first one I tried to talk sense into her. The guy was a monster (he's been in and out of prison more times than I can count).

But then she met another bloke and it was the same story. I stayed out of it.

Then she left him and met ANOTHER one exactly the same. Despite knowing all the signals. I've just come to the conclusion that she likes dickheads, and left her alone to it. She's single now although I have very little to do with her anymore. She's coked up half the time, despite it messing with her heart, and giving her a mild heart attack at 33yo. She's a single mother of three kids under 13 and that's the life she's chosen for herself.

I've also had a best friend / boyfriend abuser when I was in my young teens. But eventually I wised up and broke up with him every way you can. He's also been to prison now and he's heavy on drugs (like my sister). I made the right choice.

Still, he was gorgeous and it still breaks my heart to see that formerly very handsome face (and his life) get destroyed by hard drugs.
