50 years ago many of the problems discussed on the relationships board would not have got there.
Many would still be in their abusive relationships today.
Although sad to read/see, it is positive that many women today do post/ask for outside advice. It shows they know that their relationship is not how it should be.
Society and Government legislation may be painfully slow, But when a woman leaves an abusive relationship She tells her daughter she will not tolerate being hurt or disrespected She tells her son it is unacceptable to hurt or treat someone disrespectfully.
And that will last them their lifetime and counts more in terms of what they learn for the future that what society as a whole teaches them xx
Relationships board is a depressing insight into what women suffer in private. I agree it seems that Xmas is a bad time of year. The Conservatives are making a massive impact in peoples day to day lives, whether it be unemployment, stress of dealing with debt and the fact that so many cuts have been made to women's charities. Added to this they are skewing the benefits system to make it so difficult for women to escape violent and oppressive relationships. One step forward two steps back but forward we have to go.
