I hope the myth of domestic violence is blown up by this story. You know, the one that portrays the poor woman as the vulnerable victim because she is a homemaker and soley depends on her husband so just can't leave the relationship. I think that story is what defense attorneys used to use in court when these innocent victims turned around and killed the men they were still living with. It doesn't matter how much money someone does or doesn't have. How much they rely on the other party for whatever. People stay in these relationships because they want to and they will justify it anyway they have to. Real victims of domestic violence are the women who leave and continue to be harassed. And of course the children who have no choice.
