What is the cycle of abuse?

  • The cycle of abuse also known as the honeymoon period, was developed in the 1970s by Lenore Walker.
  • A cycle of abuse occurs in some families. The family's life becomes a cycle of violence.
  • The woman who was battered then will feel sorry for the man and recommit to him in a fantasized hope that the abuse won't happen again. But the cycle of abuse will begin again, often becoming worse.

Why don't women leave abusive relationships?

  • Leaving a relationship, no matter how abusive, is never easy. Women who leave relationships often have to opt for living in poverty.
  • They have no where to go because they are lacking skills that need to survive.

As bad as it still is there are more places for an abused person to turn for help

No disrespect here as I know the figures are extremely high for women but men are also abused and the same applies to them.

Thank you for your comment.  You are correct. Men are being abuse as well as women. However, it is harder for a woman that have children to get back on her feet. 

yes children are the main reason why a woman could stand abuse! you are right!

I used to work at the DV shelter here in our town.  I heard some pretty awful stories from some of these women, and sometimes from the kids, too. 

There is help out there for these victims of abuse...most areas do have shelters nowadays where they can go...IF they can get in.  I know our local shelter is usually full to capacity--I think it can hold up to 40 people--and our area is actually semi-rural, not a big city.

correct answers sound silly

so funny!

Hello missywuzhere, thanks for your comment. I will check out your blog on DV. Please continue to stop by.

Good for you ... We need open and honest diologue on this subject.  I hope that women who have suffered abuse stop by, read your blog and go away with a sense that their freedom is just around the corner.

I really didn't know where the saying 'honeymoon period' came from! I didn't think it was linked to domestic violence! That's shocking when you think how well known the saying is and how widely used it is!
