Women continue to die daily from this pandemic! The naked truth is not much is really being done all over the world to bring to light the senseless killings of vulnerable women at the hands of their spouses.
The signs were there, but this young lady like others including me will keep hoping something will change. we always make a thousand and one excuse why this person is like this or that, the truth is an abuser is an abuser, the more you hang on hoping for a change , the more this person manipulates and sucks you into the abusive web of abuse until you either die or wake up one day to the reality of who the monster really is.
The ugliness of domestic violence and abuse is very visible in developing countries, its almost like its acceptable for men to abuse and treat women as they like. On daily basis women are openly abused by men. In most cases it takes the death of the woman or serious life changing injuries for it to be taken seriously.
Don’t hang about an abusive man, hoping he would change, walk away, there are lots of decent men out there.
