    Anyway, it's very common for women who have been the victim of domestic violence to take their partners back multiple times before making the break. The reasons are fairly obvious;

    - they still love the prick and, perhaps, believe he can be reformed
    - they're scared if they don't take him back, he'll hunt her down
    - don't believe they can do any better/believe they deserve it
    - for the kids
    - have undiagnosed mood/emotional disorders which lead them to prefer the occasional beating to being alone

    etc. Any, one or all of these might apply.
    In my experience perceived economic necessity is probably the most common reason, coupled with the chronic lack of self-confidence that being subjected to domestic violence perpetuates

    interesting points.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I would have thought this would be the greatest contributing factor.

    Unlike Gazza, it's not part of an overarching story of a man's deterioration. If Gazza had kicked off his deterioration with bashing a woman, then it might've been different.

    The only loss for Brown was of his reputation, and I'm sure that he couldn't give a flying - he certainly wants to show that, anyway. Certainly not financial, or a mental health situation that one could feel empathetic towards. Is there any reason to feel sorry for Chris Brown?

    I'll still take any chance to post this though: Hey! Its Chris Brown! - YouTube dunno whether it's hilarious, or the most cynical bit of music video of all time.

    Women who cover for their abusive partners or return to them are generally isolated from support, and have been made to feel dependent on the abuse. Shame is also a big motivator for sticking with their abusive partners.

    Yeah, this.

    At least women have some options these days. My Mum, after fleeing with my sis and I to yet another shelter and the fear had died down a bit, would be confronted with "Okay love, what do we need to do to get you back to your husband? Are you sure he didn't have a reason? How are you going to feed your kids unless you go back home?", etc.

    Some would say it's a complicated situation to be in.
