… who have posted about their abusive boyfriends/fiances/husbands, but aren’t at the point yet where they are ready to leave him.
In this case, however, this girl was the niece of one of my mom’s best friends.
They had been trying to get her away from this guy for months.
She was able to escape him only in death.
Please ladies… PLEASE… there are no second chances when it comes to violence… and no woman ever ever deserves it. EVER.

I just posted a similar article to another DV thread from the city I went to university in. This woman didn’t escape through death, but she did lose her eyes. http://www.kamloopsnews.ca/article/20120127/KAMLOOPS0101/120129830/-1/kamloops/boyfriend-left-her-for-dead-now-she-wants-life-back
So awful 🙁

yeah, I should have mentioned that… its easy to forget, if a man is capable of acting out violently towards you, that also means he can just as easily be violent towards your children, othe family members and friends… and total strangers, like this police officer – who died trying to do her job to protect people.

to be honest DV is what ended my previous marriage…. i walked away with nothing..10 years married lost my job and my home and had to relocate because he was stalking me and my family…. but I gained my freedom and life. Its hard to say when you not in the situation..looking back now ( i left him 5 years ago) i shouldve left sooner then i did..but there was so many things holding me back, and you cant force a person to make drastic changes.. if you know anyone going thru it- be supportive and dont judge but also let them know they can find peace and love without that person

@girlwiththeredhair: Oh my gosh that’s horrifying! There were so many signs too. =(
It’s so sad to read articles of domestic violence when they end in death. A girl I went to high school with was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. He was abusive and she did the right thing and left him but he killed her. Here’s the article: http://www.tampabay.com/news/courts/criminal/boyfriend-goes-on-trial-in-murder-of-university-of-tampa-student/1105626
It’s so sad to see women stay with their abusive significant other/bf/husband. They have to know there is help and they can get away from it.

You also have to wonder if the only thing keeping them there is the thought that he would go off the deep end if they left?? So basically, a damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation.
Very sad, on all accounts
