    Nice article and I agree there are a myriad of reasons why people stay in abusive relationships. However I think they stem far deeper then we care to analyse.

    A lot of people like you rightly pointed out start enduring this abuse from their youth. Some have seen some form of abuse at home and in their endeavour to escape that they cling on to whatever form of appreciation or attention paid to them. Similar to joining a gang one might say.

    As many have observed abuse in society or at home, they begin to see it as the norm, over looking the little episodes empowering the abuser to go further.

    Nigeria as a whole has accepted and normalised domestic violence. From the way some fathers speak to their wives, male teachers to female teacher boys to girls. We see it as we head to work or school. The female hawker being physically, verbally and sexually abused on the street. Gosh it is everywhere when you think about it. Even in government.

    Like most things in Nigeria, if ee want change we have to start with a long, deep hard look at ourselves and our actions.

    There’s something called stockolm syndrome. The abused becomes dependant on the abuser for a sense of worth and can’t imagine life without their abuser. It’s a psychological issue. People sometimes mistake madness for love
