Andrew, most men....

...have nothing binding them to an abusive relationship. A wife/mother may stick around because she believes in her and the family's dependence upon the abuser. The male is often the breadwinner. The male is rarely the stay-at-home parent who gave up a career. The male, however, can usually leave at will. I can't comment on a male who has such low self-esteem and is so dependent that he simply can't leave, as I have no frame of reference. I'm in my mid-fifties, and I've never known any male that weak. I have unfortunately met far too many women who thought they couldn't leave and needed the abusive SOB.... ...but anyone, regardless of gender, who sticks around once the abuse starts is asking for trouble. The second time you see that look in his (or her) eyes, GET OUT AND NEVER GO BACK.
