How do you convince a woman to snap out of that "battered woman" mentality?
My cousin was married, had a baby, and divorced. About 7 years ago she started dating this guy and he was verbally abusive to her for the whole 6 years they dated. Screaming at her, cursing at her, callin her names, and she stuck with him. She moved across the country and now lives near me. She met a new man and he treated her like a princess, very sweet and gentle and they started talking about their future together. All of the sudden, she dumps him and decides she’s going back to her “bad boy” in California. Everyone has tried to talk sense into her. Her parents, her brother, her twin sister and her husband. No one knows what to say to her. She also has a 13 year old daughter and I’d hate for her to be around such a douche.
