OK .....

A rented house  ......

So are you saying that you would rather hold on to a house and suffer abuse than to leave and have things split up?

Have you ever experience domestic violence?

The number one reason why there is domestic violence in america.........parents!

Alchohol yes  ........ !

But not necessarily the parents as I believe many do not want to be as their parents  .........

That is why many in the west see themselves as different and independent ........  !

Well that is exactly what my husband used to say when we first met.

His father was abusive and then his step-father was abusive and then another step-father that was abusive.

He hated them and didn't want to be anything like them.  I believed him and felt sorry for him.  He was beat as a kid.  He did not want to emulate the people he despised....but then he did just that.  Alcohol, the stresses of being in the military, being too young and married....it got the best of him.  Statistically, violence runs in families.  You have to break the cycle of abuse.

I got a chance to see my nephew from his side over the weekend.  He is a good kid trying hard to break the cycle in the family.  He traced alcoholism and domestic violence back in the family for over 8 generations.

I agree, it would be much easier to pick up and leave if you could take all your valuables with you.

No one cares about that stuff.  Seriously.

You guys must not know what it is like.  

I lived in a shelter for two months with my children before moving out.  My son had his first birthday in a shelter.  But none of us had to fear anything.  There was no yelling, getting thrown about the house, getting things thrown at you.  Hearing your children crying because they are scared.

Are you seriously going to worry about your material things?

Who thinks like this?
