Why do nice guys like mean girls?

I see this happening time and time again. A really nice decent guy with a really nasty girl. She's mean, unreasonable, demanding, downright nasty and treats her man like dirt. Worse of all, she's actually physically and verbally abusive towards her man. He never retaliates and instead just choses to put up with her. Yet despite all this lousy treatment, these guys chose to stick by their girls. But why? Do you also know of any guys who are in abusive relationships? Are you a guy in such a relationship? Can anyone tell me why such nice sweet guys would choose mean girls?
