WHY: The number of American soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 and 2012 was 6,488. The number of American women who were murdered by current or ex male partners during that time was 11,766. That’s nearly double the number of casualties lost overseas. On average, a woman will leave an abusive relationship seven times before she leaves for good. People often wonder why people don’t just leave a bad relationship. As it turns out, there are a host of psychological, financial and even neurobiological reasons why it is hard to extricate yourself from an abusive connection. Domestic violence is so widespread, many of us will have it touch our lives directly or through those we love. It is essential we all learn about this complex problem and how to help those caught in it.
