i heard a woman talking today and she was talking about the only reason that she was still in the relationship was because she was scared to get out of it because that is all she has ever known(was him) and she wouldn't even know how to function without him in her life..and i was just sitting there thinking why are you still in the relationship, i mean it sounds to me like you aren't happy so i was just wondering why you are there...i mean i never ask her because i didn't want to just walk up to her and start in with that, but i mean it just didn't make a lot of sense to me, so i was just hoping that some of you could explain it to me, i know that its going to be different but isn't it better to be happy and out of it than in it and be unhappy for your life? thanks for taking the time to read my discussion and i hope that you all answer and i hope that you all have a great day!

yes, i've been scared. in a previous relationship i was with someone who was controlling and abusive mentally and physically. i stayed in that horrible situation for 3 years because i didn't want to leave my home and my own business. i knew if i left him i would have to move somewhere he wouldn't find us to be completly free. i guess i was stubbon and in the end i did leave when he started using his anger on the children.

Yes i have.. My last relationship before i got married the guy was a very abusive and controlling person.. I remember everything he did to me.. I was with this guy for three years because i was scared to get out of the relationship... I was crazy to stay in the relationship for that long, three years is a long time..
