"This is a very detailed and extremely supportive article about the reasons women tell themselves they need to stay put in abusive relationships…and you need to read it all." -- Neil Warner, CreativeConflicts.com

"An excellent piece of writing that speaks very practically about the reasons someone stays in a bad relationship. Worth looking at, even if you are not someone, nor do you know someone who is abusive.  The answers John gives helps us understand how it is that we may do things that do not seem like it’s in our best interest. It is a wonderfully well written, easy to understand and non-clinical approach to answering the question, “Why do some women stay in abusive relationships?” -- Marc Sadoff, RealHope.com
