Turn a blind eye to an abuser?

My friend had mention this to me and thought my opinion on it. Her friend was in an abusive relationship, and she made the comment she makes the choice to stay. In a sense yes I can see that but what if they can't leave or those around him know of his behaviour yet ignores it. It got me thinking and I did a little research more the physchology way and them thinking. My younger brother fits the perfect description of an abuser. I am not saying anything as I don't talk to my brother, and really could care a less about him. But then I also think of the other side the woman in the middle of it how do they think.

Greetings, Ricki! I'm not sure about what happens in that kind of relationship. Sometimes women are abused and often they do not report the abuse to the authorities. More than that: they stick to their abuser. I am not sure if it has something to do with a submissive biological behavior or if it is some kind of pathology. Either way, it sure gets me thinking a lot about it. I have met many women that chooses aggressive partners. Specially in our society, seems like their behavior is somehow desired: the guys that will not lower their head, that will face anyone who stand in their way, that will act like if they ruled everything. I don't fit that description. And, if I were a girl, I'd never stick to a man who abused me. Go figure... Respectfully.

I would never stick with a man who abuses either. I dated one guy who hit me once, my bags were packed and I was gone in 10 minutes never looking back. I just always curious of how they think and why they stay.
