No one has the right to tell anyone to "get a backbone" and move out. It's an ignorant thing to say and even more so being a Talk Show Host because they are suppose to do their homework before their program. If they did, they would realize that leaving an abusive situation isn't as simple for many women as it looks. Until a person walks in the victim's shoes they have no right to make such comments. However, in this day and age there is absolutely no reason for a woman to stay in an abusive relationship. I volunteer for a Women's Abuse Center" and there is plenty of help for the victim and they can even get legal counsel and are also kept in a "safe house" or "Transition House" until they can get psychological counseling to undo the brain-washing techniques the abuser has caused, and also legal counsel to get rid of the abuser. After that they will even help the person to find ways to better their education or get a job and become independent. I know many women who have managed to get away from their abuser and are living on their own. It is NOT safe to stay in an abusive situations and it's proven often. Some men get so angry they can beat their victims half to death, cripple them and even sometimes murder is involved. If there are children involved it's all the more reason to get out of this abusive relationship. Believe it or not a victim of abuse does has the power to change her destiny. Good luck Marcy

Answer According to the Family Violence Prevention Fund, one in every three women worldwide are victims of sexual, physical, emotional, and other abuse during their lif…etime. That adds up to about 1 billion abused women around the world every single year. http://www.stopvaw.org/Prevalence_of_Domestic_Violence.html
Why do so many Abuse websites and talk shows that deal with abuse suggest that the victim get counseling when it is plain that this will just be another thing for the abuser to use against her?
Answer If the victim hasn't left on her own, it's obvious that just telling her to leave won't make much sense. Most responsible advice tells the abuser and vict…im to go to counseling so that the problem can be accurately diagnosed and both parties will be able to slowly acknowledge the eventual outcome. Using that method results in far fewer problems in the long run. It may appear to be a clear problem to some people with an obvious answer, but other people need a little time to live with the problem and learn to deal with it and yes, even to have a chance to change their behavior. Answer Because, while the abuser is in definite need of counseling, so is the victim of abuse. There are personality traits, learned behaviors and traumatic instances that an abuse victim may be able to alter given the right therapy. Juts the fact that your're worried that therapy is something that can be used against the victim rather than a tool to free her indicates a need for counseling.
Why do talk show hosts seem to look the other way when dealing with abusers and send the abuser home with the victim when the reality is that she faces serious repercussions for her candid statements?
Answer The public heard her confessions and she has everyone's sympathy for the abuse. Do you think the abuser will go back to his old ways when people will now …be watching him closer? It is possible that they could, but this person will have all sorts of hard evidence when she does finally divorce him. Being on TV may be a real push to change for this abuser.

It depends on the situation. I had this exact same situation occur to me, but I was the defendant and I wanted to fight the charge. I opted to go to trial, and from that point… I had 30 days to receive my quick and speedy trial (CA). When I was 10 days away from my trial date, I had to go into court, and the (so called) victim was supposed to be there as well, but she wasn't. Long story short, during the last 10 days leading up to my trial date, I had to return to court nearly every day to see if the District Atty found and got her to to come in, and if not, to see if he wanted to dismiss or keep "trailing" until the day prior to trial. On the day prior to the trial date, the District Atty announced to the judge that he was unable to proceed because he couldn't locate the victim. In my case, I had evidence that would have helped me, and without his star witness, the D.A. had no chance of winning. I'm not a legal guru, but I'd say if there is enough evidence (medical records, other witnesses, etc...), the District Atty will go after you, even if he doesn't have the victim.
Depends on the type of case. In some cases the defense can argue that as the victim doesn't wish to turn up they are therefore forfeting the case. In other cas…es the police may choose to take the case to court even without the victim if there is sufficent evidence to do so.
Some people are drawn to certain kinds of relationships that do not initially seem abusive but turn into abuse down the line. This is usually because of childhood issues. They… do not choose to be abused, they simply choose the wrong partners. No one makes another person abuse them. The abuser always has the option of walking away -- running if necessary. People do not cause their own abuse, and attempting to blame it on the victim instead of the abuser is absolutely unacceptable.
two-thirds...& it's increasing day by day
About 80,000 people die of relationship abuse a year.
That's kind of like a typical "bullying scenario". He who has been bullied, shall bully. Most of the time. If someone is being abused, usually 1 of 3 things happens: 1)… After this has gone on for a while, they decide they can't take it anymore, and they commit suicide 2) When the person gets older, they learn to forgive (this usually only occurs in high-spirited people) 3)When they get older, they take out their anger and frustration on others, because they feel like it "justifies" the wrong-doing they wen through Look at it this way: If there are 5 people in a room who are all being abused, 1 of those people will later commit suicide, 3 of those people will become abusers themselves, and and the last person will be the "forgiver" (not forget. how can you forget about someone who's mistreated you for years?) I hope this answers your question.
