Yours is a rather heavy question full of emotion and it is possible that you ask the question because you have lived in one such “cruel and hopeless marriage”.
Many wanted legal advice on how to get out of “cruel and hopeless marriages,”
According to the report, some of the women stayed for what were practical reasons.
Others stayed because their parents had told them that marriage was for life and that good girls stayed on no matter what the problem was.
In therapy a few months later, after yet another violent injury, the woman explained that she stayed on in this hopeless situation because of the sex that followed their disagreements.
In her view, she had endured a difficult and hopeless marriage for 30 years and now that her children were grown up, she was ready to start life all over again.
