Women Who Stayed In Abusive RelationshipsPhysical violence in a relationship is horrible. There is no place for it. But some men and women make excuses for physical abuse and stay together when things turn for the worst. These couples tried to make it work despite the violence in their relationships. ...which is never a good option.
