My closest friend is in the third abusive relationship since we've been friends. I lost my best friend from my high school years to domestic violence and come from a family that sees women who don't obey them in adulthood as property absent without leave. I do not want to lose another friend to domestic violence. I know how prevalent it is in our society. I appreciate your site being here because when my friend is going through a rough patch I use this website to remind me of all the things I learned in 1997 when I left my own abusers.
