Why are some women afraid to be alone, oftentimes preferring to be in a less than positive/


respectful, even abusive relationship rather than to be alone which they deem to be equivalent to being in the ninth circle of hell? There ARE women who fall for the societal inculcation that they are INCOMPLETE if they aren't in a relationship. They strongly contend that in order to be considered worthwhile in the eyes of their family, friends, & other associates, they MUST have a relationship, even if the relationship is less than positive. There are women who proclaim that I have a MAN as a badge of honor. There are some who even stay in hellish relationships rather than to be...ALONE.

    In most instances for a woman to become a wife & a mother a man has to become a husband & a father. And yet if a man doesn't make that his "mission" it's not considered "wrong". Life is a (personal) journey.

    Exactly, the relationship premise is constantly pushed down our throats; however, it is the MORE VULNERABLE & DESPERATE who cave in, oftentimes to quite DISASTROUS results!

    Each of us chooses our own friends, lovers, and spouse. All relationships are "at will" and no one is "stuck" with anyone. There are over 7 Billion people on earth. You said "a bad man wouldn't allow...." It's not up to him! Love of self is key.
