We are attracted to what is familiar. Simply leaving an abusive relationship does nothing to heal us. We will likely tumble headlong into another one. Abusers are manipulative and charming and we are drawn to them again and again.

The romance in a relationship is nothing in the bigger picture when your spouse is abusing you. There is no sex, oral etc. that can be worth putting up and tolerating a man that puts his hands on you. Find a man that morals and was raised better than that.

The typical cycle of abuse goes: abusive incident, apology and attempt to regain trust, loss of trust, provoking incident, repeat of abuse. When you see this cycle happening, leave.

Relationships vary in many forms it may be physical, spiritual, and/or emotional one. People often than not tend to equate physical attractions to romantic relationships. The latter being the manifestation of the former. Relationships of these kind offshoots to abuses, thus, the domino effect comes in the forefront.

The pattern seems to be that a woman with a history of abuse seems drawn to abusive men. The man can be charming at first but then gets controlling and jealous and then violent. Often the woman is made to feel worthless and that she will never find another man.
