Believe it or not, I receive messages from men asking for help that run something along the lines of, “Hey, she slashed my tires, had sex with my nephew and cleaned out my bank account. Should I consider getting out of this relationship?”
In fact, many of the men seeking assistance for problems with women like this are men who, if hearing their own stories from any other man, would be screaming “Get out! Run!!” But when it comes to saying goodbye to the abusive, unstable women in their own lives, they have the sad and self-destructive tendency to make excuses, enable and stay.
There are several cultural and psychological reasons for this, which are discussed in this video.
