This is for "2cents." My answer to your last comment would be, either these women are taking these guys back because they have a very low opinion of themselves, or they are afraid of saying no. Women can be extremely intimidated by men. I speak from experience, when I say that if a woman has been in an abusive relationship long enough, she feels unworthy of a decent guy. You may think this is a load of bull, but it's true. My abusive ex-husband threatened not only to do harm to me if I didn't take him back, but to my family as well. What a coward he was!
