Are You Ignoring The Signs????
One out of four women have experienced domestic violence in her lifetime. 22% of married men have strayed at least once in their marriage. In 2005, one of the most common reasons for divorce (for couples under 29-years-old) was for financial reasons. Ladies, I did not come up with these stats myself, however I am sharing them because I believe that before things get to this point we all see the signs. It is our choice whether we will address or ignore them.
I’ll begin with the abuse. Numerous domestic violence studies show that in most cases women who experience domestic violence are tested months (in some cases, years) before they are beaten with another form of abuse, verbal abuse. The reason that I use the word “test” is because that is exactly what it is. When calling you out of your name, telling you that no one else wants you, and constantly causing you to second guess yourself is not addressed; sooner or later he’ll probably be putting his hands on you (if this continues). Needless to say, look out for the signs.
Many women who discover infidelity in their marriage later openly admit that they noticed some disrespectful behavior before walking down the aisle. Some even say that they caught their spouses cheating, but thought they’d changed their ways. Each situation is different, but again DON’T IGNORE THE SIGNS! Your woman’s intuition usually lets you know whether or not your man is faithful. Again, it’s up to you to be attentive.
Last but not least, there is that man than spends his bill money in the club (but you don’t know it), buys you gifts often , and you find out that he lives with his mother and is in debt up to his eyeballs. Not to mention marrying him. Knowing your man also includes knowing his finances. This is definitely a sign that you don’t want to ignore. Ask questions, pay attention to his habits.
Some situations are unfortunate, and others we place ourselves into because we are being naive. However, there are some good men in the world, but if you are constantly trying to change a bad one or take care of a broke one you’ll never find out. PAY ATTENTION!
